Use Dashboard API to extract configuration from a network

Is this possible? I need to move some networks to different org's. I know that equipment and licenses can be moved from "license info", but what about the configuration?

Re: Use Dashboard API to extract configuration from a network

Hi, you can use a third party application to perform a full organization/network backup/restore.

 

Disclaimer, I work for V-App.io which has a Cloud Network Backup application specific for this task.

Yes, this can be done with the API.  I just did this last weekend with python module from meraki. If you would like some help just PM me and I can point you in the direction you need.

That's the time when I'm browsing through forums and always ask myself "we doesn't he just point us all into the direction needed"?! It's a forum, you know @Steinbep? It's about nor providing help via PM but within the forums themselves. 😉

It's not correct to state that you can perform a "full" restore, based on the limited endpoints we've got. (Not a criticism of the API team - they add stuff constantly, and it takes time to build/test!)

 

If you've got L3 routing going on via Meraki switches, you've got to recreate that manually. OSPF? Manual.

 

Client VPN on the MX? Manual.

 

Users on your MX? Manual recreation.

My backup/restore script you do most of what you want.
