How to check the blocked clients list

Dear Meraki,

I would like to get a client's url in Meraki dashboard API. Usually, we can access a client's url and see MR Access Point in Meraki Dashboard. I will develop a browser to select a device name and open a client's access point in a map. I cannot find any samples. Please tell me how to use Meraki dashboard API.

Regards.

Do you know any scripting languages, like Python, or any programming languages, like C?

 Yes. Python, Java and C are available.

While logged into the Dashboard go Help/API docs.

Hi,

I had accessed Help/API, but here is no instruction to get a client URL in dashboard API. Please tell me how to get it.

I'm not aware of a way to get a "URL". When you use the API it is usually because you are developing your own software, not interfacing with the Dashboard.

Usually, we can access "Clients" in dashboard, click a device, and see AP in a map. Here, I would like to access the map with Meraki API directly. So far, I would like to develop a tool by using Python, Java or C. For example,  I would like to get url of "https://xxxxxxx.meraki.com/Head-Office_NW/n/xxxxx/manage/usage/list#timespan=86400&c=****" which shows a client's information with a map of AP.

Noriko,

 

Are you trying to locate a client on the map or link to the dashboard page for the client details? These are two different use cases. 

 

If you just want the location of a client MAC address, we have an example:

http://live-map.meraki.com/

 

To build this, follow our detailed guide here:

https://github.com/meraki/scanning-api-app

 

If you want to link to the Dashboard's Client details page, you'll need to know the URL including the network's hash and the client's hash which is only available in the UI. We don't have an API that constructs the URL.

 

If you want to check if a client is blocked, you can use this API call:
