Rollout SSID to 50 networks in the same organization

Hey there,

 

i do need to rollout a new SSID to approx. 50 networks within the same org. Any recomandations? I am a python noob, used api a little bit before to get some network details but never used it for configure something. Thankful for any help.

cheers Chris

Kind of a big deal

I'm going to guess these 50 networks are not bound to a template otherwise this would be easy.

 

I don't have anything directly to help.

 

Maybe check out the Meraki Python tutorial.

This GitHub has a lot of automation scripts.  Nothing that matches exactly what you want, but there are some scripts with interact with SSIDs, so something you could copy and paste.

Re: Rollout SSID to 50 networks in the same organization

thanks, i managed to do it with meraki-cli https://github.com/PackeTsar/meraki-cli/blob/master/COMMAND_GUIDE.md with the following command:

 

meraki wireless updateNetworkWirelessSsid --organizationId XXXXXX --networkId 'N_XXXXXXXXXXXXXX' --number '14' --name 'XXXXXXXXXX' --enabled "true" --authMode 'psk' --encryptionMode 'wpa' --psk 'XXXXXXXX' --wpaEncryptionMode 'WPA2 only' --ipAssignmentMode 'Bridge mode' --useVlanTagging "true" --defaultVlanId "XXX" --visible "false"

 

I just copied this command in notepad and replayed the network-Id with the real ones and pasted all in the CLI. completed successfull to 130 networks even i guess there is a smarter solution with loops. overall i did in approx. 2 hours, by hand it would be 10hours (ish)
