Dashboard API has a new look!


The Dashboard API documentation has been migrated to our new platform in preparation for the upcoming v1 major release this summer!




What's new?


- Improved search and navigation, with detailed information about every endpoint.

- Easily demo and test the API with a built in demo environment, or update the settings with your own information.

- The Meraki Python Library includes code snippets in our Template section of the console.

That's not all!


You can also begin checking out the new API v1-beta docs, to see what's coming this summer.

API v1 (beta) Docs






A note about the Dashboard API SDKs:


We have decided to no longer update the SDKs that were generated through our third-party provider. They enabled our users by quickly providing SDKs for NodeJS, Ruby and Python as we focused on the core API. Going forward, we have decided to focus on our custom Python library which takes full advantage of our API mechanics and provides a more Merakified experience. 


More info on our SDKs


But don't worry, the GitHub repositories will remain, so that the code can be forked and extended. Alternatively, since the Dashboard API is built upon the OpenAPI specification, you can use a wealth of tools to generate an SDK in any language you like using our API spec.




Kind of a big deal

You fixed the search!! The old docs' search was so erratic that I honestly normally went to postman.meraki.com and used Find there.

Kind of a big deal

Great news! Thanks @DexterLaBora . Is there a short url for it? I always kinda used postman.meraki.com because it was easy to remember.

Is there a short URL? Yes!

@Nash , yeah... search is an important part of docs. We have over 400 endpoints and growing.. so sometimes just searching is much faster than sifting through folders.

Hell yeah, that's great news! 🐵
