Export setup configuration of Meraki as backup

So I'm trying to determine if there is a way to restore our existing configuration to a new Meraki in the event our current MX64 has a hardware failure.  The hope would be to grab a new Meraki and somehow restore our current settings.  From my limited search, it looks like our config may already be in Meraki's cloud and could be pulled down to our new device.
 
Can anyone point me to a kb article or confirm the procedure?
 
Thanks!

The config lives in dashboard. If a Meraki device fails you replace it in the same dashboard network and it will assume the same config. The only thing you'd need to redo is setting a static WAN IP (if using that).

You can do this in a couple of ways.
