I have a client that I am trying to sell MDM on and they were not really concerned with the currently location of the device but rather a history of locations. Is this currently possible or being thought about?
I've seen a number of companies use SM to push and manage 3rd party apps for this kind of bread crumb tracking. That might be something to look into!
You could also use the API to routinely pull and externally save/store location info . For privacy purposes, SM will not do this itself. If at some point it is supported by apple and android in their APIs for MDM, that could change!
I am interesting in building a small program that will routine pull and save/store location info. However, the only 'GET' options for SM portion of the API doesn't return the location information. Can you point me in the right direction?
I am currently here:
GET request: nXX.meraki.com/api/v0/networks/N_XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/sm/devices?serials=XXXXXXXX
Which returns gives me back the matching object with keys: id, name, tags, ssid, wifiMac, osName, systemModel, uuid, serialNumber and hasChromeMdm... but no Location.
I think you misunderstood my question.. I've already done that part. What i need is the next step, to get the location of the "found" device. I imagine the url would be something like networks/N_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/sm/device/[serial]/location
