I am brand-new to Meraki (but not new to network security devices) and need help locating a feature: how do I create a report of a particular user's internet usage? I need to see the websites this user has been accessing for a particular time period. It would be nice if I could also see the time spent browsing. and of course, the ability to export this report so that I can provide it to the employee's manager is required.
every firewall/security device I have ever worked with has included this function but I can't find it on the Meraki. Can someone point me in the right direction?
The best you can do is:
Network-Wide/Clients/<select time span at the top>/<select the client>/<click "show details" on the right
To get detailed info you need "Traffic analysis" set t collect host names under Network-Wide/General.
Take a look at the Summary Report feature - https://documentation.meraki.com/MX-Z/Monitoring_and_Reporting/Summary_Report_Overview. I don't know if you can get as granular to export a report to a specific client, however, gives you something to work with.
thanks, that gets me close to what I need...can't export it though to provide to non-IT staff.
and I've used some, specifically Fortigate, that do a great job of analyzing the web conversation and grouping all of the requests together...Meraki's is not a very complete solution compared to other products.
