Ping Client IP Address With Ping Live Tool

Trying to get the ping to result below, but I'm getting the result. 

 

{'pingId': '766174886620948907', 'url': '/devices/XXXX-XXXX-XXXX/liveTools/ping/766174886620948907', 'request': {'serial': 'XXXX-XXXX-XXXX', 'target': '10.51.133.49', 'count': '2'}, 'status': 'ready'}

 

From the API result in this URL 

https://developer.cisco.com/meraki/api-latest/#!get-device-live-tools-ping

 

I suppose to get a full body of the ping result? with thing like "loss": { "percentage": 0 },  

I'm not getting that. Am I missing anything?  

 

Here is my code. 

 

Clients = dashboard.networks.getNetworkClients(
network_id, total_pages='all')         # get a client list of the network 

 

my_dict = {}
for client in Clients:
       my_dict.update(client)
       serial = my_dict.get('recentDeviceSerial')             # get the serial number   
       target = str(my_dict.get('ip'))                                   # get the IP address 
       ping_resp1 = dashboard.devices.createDeviceLiveToolsPing(serial, target, count=2)  # create ping 
       pingid = ping_resp1.get('pingId')     ## get the ping ID 
       ping_resp2 = dashboard.devices.getDeviceLiveToolsPing(serial, pingid)    ### get ping result 
       print(ping_resp2)

You're making the two API calls without any significant delay between them. It may simply be that you get no results because the pinging hasn't yet completed.

 

If you put a delay of, say, 5 seconds, between the two calls, does it help? I.e.   time.sleep(5000)
