Environmental sensors only access

Is it possible to give a user / admin only rights to view the environmental sensors in one network?


I have a user who is working in quality, and he needs to be able so view all environmental sensors, but I don't want to give him full read access to one network.

you can give access rights either on organization level or network level. See the following documentation.



I tried to move the sensor to a dedicated network...but this will not work as long you do not have the device (MR or MV) to which the MT connects is also in this network.

In other words.

The MR's and/or MV's to which you like to connect the MT's need to be in the same network.


So you can restrict a dedicated user to have access only to MT's and the connecting MV's or MR's..

hope this helps



yes, same here. And additional my customer (medical stuff)  wants to download the temperature csv file. Thats not possible with the R/O Account I created.

Yep, same here.  We use it to monitor our robotic automation rooms and non-IT people need access to the data in CSV format.  I'm working on extracting this data from the API, but I'm having trouble with the JSON paths changing dynamically every time I run it.  It randomizes the JSON paths for each of the metrics.  I've opened a ticket with Meraki to see if they have any advice on how to keep them from changing.

Hi @MarcoKoch Did you manage to give access only to the sensor view, or did you have to set read-only permissions for the entire network?

Getting noticed

I'm having the same issue.  I would love to find a way to give regular users access to only the sensors.  As far as I can tell, they need full read_only access to the entire network.  The "monitor-only" role does not seem to give access to the sensors for some reason.

Kind of a big deal

+1 for me, I asked for this in another thread a week or so ago. I have users that I would like to give sensor only access to just like I currently have users who only access cameras.
