API - Block a device from an SSID

I need help with blocking a device from a specific SSID using API.

There is an option to do so in the Meraki UI by selecting the client:

It does the work just fine. I am looking to find a way to do the same using an API request.


checking client policy by

/networks/[networkId]/clients/[client_mac]/policy

Before changing:

{

    "mac": "__MAC___",

    "type": "Normal"

}

After changing

{

    "mac": "__MAC___",

    "type": "Different policies by SSID",

    "ssids": {

        "0": {

            "type": "Normal",

            "name": "SSID_Name0"

        },

        "1": {

            "type": "Normal",

            "name": "SSID_Name1"

        },

        "3": {

            "type": "Blocked",

            "name": "SSID_Name3"

        }

    }

}

I know I can send a request with device policy being whitelisted/blocked/normal/group, but I aim for "Different policies by SSID" or any other way to achieve it, if anyone knows.

 

Thanks in advance

Thanks for trying to help, found the way.

PUT request to
api.meraki.com/api/v0/networks/{{NetworkId}}/clients/{{ClientMac}}/policy?timespan=86400&devicePolicy=Different policies by SSID

with the body

blocked_msg=&access=custom&custom_policy%5B0%5D=-1&custom_policy%5B1%5D=-1&custom_policy%5B3%5D=1&ids%5B%5D=DEVICE_ID

(when parsed it looks like this:)

Will get the result of the client having 'Normal' policy towards ssids with ID 0 and 1
'Blocked' for ssid with ID 3

Re: API - Block a device from an SSID

The API does not appear to support setting different group policies for a client by SSID.  I'm not aware of any workaround.
