Preferred SSID - Open or Password Protected

In the Systems Manager, we are able to see the Preferred SSID's list under the device profile. Is there a way to see if that SSID is open or password protected? Or is there a report we can run to find that information? Thanks.

Hello @lchan 


To check the available SSIDs on the Meraki Dashboard that you can push to devices, go to Systems Manager -> Settings -> Pick a profile -> Add WiFi Setting Payload and Select Sentry. For Manual configuration, check the same with manual settings and you would need to configure the SSID auth settings in there manually. 


On the device itself, you will see the available SSIDs but the auth details would not be visible to the user. Please let me know if you have any questions.
