Cisco Meraki and DNA-Center Integrations

I hope I put this in the correct location. I am trying to understand if this integration is possible, or road-mapped, or if it was abandoned.

Fantastic, I followed the steps found in the solution provided by @Inderdeep and was able to add my Meraki devices into DNA-C sites inventory. 

There are a few product types that didn't appear though, but what I really needed / expected to come over has, so this is a win for me. 

More testing to come.

Not tried it recently, but with an older release of DNAC I added a test organization to see what it was like.

 

Found it extremely limited, then when I removed the org from DNAC, DNAC didn't clean itself up properly (no impact on the org itself.)

 

I think the latest versions of DNAC allow some basic provisioning of MR devices to assign SSID(s) defined in Dashboard, but beyond that I believe it's still very limited.

Thank you, this is good to know!

At the moment, I'm not really looking for a way to push configuration although it would be a nice to have. At this time I am only looking for up/down monitoring and network visibility, a way to consolidate my Catalyst + Meraki into a single dashboard (DNA-C). Getting these into my DNA-C Sites Hierarchy would just be nice.

Telemetry information would also be nice.
