Script via Postman and Python to check on firmware via API Meraki

I am trying to learn more on using Postman, and connecting to my Meraki MX or MS, and running a script to see what the firmware version is running on it, and maybe even try pushing a firmware update to it. 

 

Does anyone have any super easy instructions on this? 🙂 or perhaps something else that is useful when dealing with the Meraki API and Postman? I think it is a skill that would be super beneficial later down the road...

Kind of a big deal

I have never gone too deep into any API coding, but this is a really useful tool that leverages pretty much everything the API has to offer without needing to do much except read some directions and use Google sheets: https://developer.cisco.com/docs/meraki-tools-google-sheets-add-on/#!introduction/meraki-tools-for-g...

 

When the time comes I am sure I will learn more, I just haven't needed to yet 🙂

You don't get firmware versions for a device, but for a network that the device is in.  You'll need to use this API call.
