How to close python meraki.DashboardAPI session

As a final step i want to close the session to meraki dashboard, but i can't find a way to do it. Can anyone advise on some way to achieve this?

Here are some sample scripts, maybe they can help you.:

What you are probably looking for is the C++ equivalent to a destructor. Assuming that the meraki.DashboardAPI() object has a __del__() method, you can simply use del dashboard.


dashboardObj = meraki.DashboardAPI()

del dashboardObj

AFAIK the 'session' in the Meraki Python library is just a wrapper for a set of parameters such as base URL org ID, API key, control settings etc. that are then used by each API call referencing that 'session'.


From Dashboard's end, there is no session, it sees just a series of standalone calls, each containing all required info.


If you want to clean up, it's just a local activity, there's no Dashboard session to close.

That answer might be a bit tricker when you consider AIO.
