Want to throw out a feature request. I have a customer with two WAN links. Well for some reason WAN 2 went into a failed status, and we only found out because we logged in and saw packet loss is 100% on WAN 2. No alerts were received because Wan 1 is still primary and no fail over has occurred.
It would be nice to get email alert if WAN 2 is offline so we can contact the ISP and investigate.
Does the Network Wide>Alerts "The primary uplink status changes" not send you something? But I agree it would be nice to have a more specific WAN based alert, in addition to being able to name the WAN interfaces.

Correct, having that enabled will not send us an alert. That will alert if primary up-link fails, but let's say your ISP changes your WAN 2 IP addresses, so it fails. Meraki has no way of letting you know. You could go months not realizing your WAN 2 is broken, and only find out when primary fails and the WAN 2 doesn't pick up.
Triple checked, we do have "primary uplink status change" enabled.
This would be nice for sure. But i'd still have my work around in affect even if this functionality came into being. I have a nagios instance in AWS that monitors both WANs at a few different locations. That way I can get emails, sms and push notifications of any loss or high latency.
