Cisco Meraki Guest account creation with Rest API

I am new to Cisco Meraki, I want to understand that is there any way to create guest account for guest/vistor using Rest api call only?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

 

we are on the same side. I am first documenting the Meraki REST API material with Postman, Python and Github. I attach some links that can give you more idea. We can share experiences in development if you want.

f you do not have access to a Meraki dashboard organization with networks and devices, you can use this API key: [REMOVED]

 

You render !!

Kind of a big deal

I'd be delighted to be wrong, but all I'm seeing is getNetworkMerakiAuthUsers (all users) and getNetworkMerakiAuthUser (one user at a time). Nothing to create users or delete them.

 

Creating and updating via API would solve a problem for me, so long as one could authorize for client VPN... My boss would go for a widget that my helpdesk could use. My boss will not go for SAML, for reasons.

@Nash is correct.  There is no API to create guest user accounts.

Hello !

I have create a guest user account for WLAN Guest.

 

You must use this link :

 

"https://api.meraki.com/api/v1/networks/[Your_Network_ID]/merakiAuthUsers"

 

To get your Network ID in first : 


Get your Organizations ID :  "https://api.meraki.com/api/v1/organizations"

 

And get your network ID : 

("https://api.meraki.com/api/v1/organizations/[Your_Organizations _ID]/networks")

 

For guest user you must specify : accountType="Guest"

 

For Authorizations values you have :

expiresAt="2021-04-15T22:25:29.000000Z";   #### OR  "Never";
ssidNumber=2 ###ID to SSID GUEST
authorizedZone="NAME SSID GUEST"

authorizedByName="the name of the person who created the account"
authorizedByEmail="the e-mail of the person who created the account"

 

For the Guest account :

email = 'Email for the guest account';

name = 'Description Guest account';

password = 'Password';

accountType="Guest";

emailPasswordToUser=false; ## OR True

authorizations=@(Authorizations variable)
