How to make it easier for API nubes

I was thinking - how could the experience of someone who has never used an API be made a little bit simpler?


I thought a challenge for people starting might be getting the org_id and network_id.


Then I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if, in Organization Overview, you could select a column called "Network ID" that simply displayed it in the dashboard.  Then new people could export it to a CSV or copy and paste easily.


You would still need to display the org_id somewhere.  Not sure where that should go.  What about in Organization Settings/Enable API?  As soon as you enable the API - display the organization ID.

Would that be "Meraki simple"?

Org ID should be in the footer on any page. It is for my orgs.

So it is!  Now we just need an easy way to show the network ID.

I wish it would simply be in the footer OR the URL that would be nice ! Good suggestion

See your point @PhilipDAth . Would be a good way to cross check that the NetworkID you’re working with also corresponds to the right Network in the Dashboard.
