SSID Password Change

Hey all,

 

Is there a way to change the password of all the SSIDs I have altogether?

 

I have multiple sites with multiple Cisco Meraki wireless access points. When it's time to change the password for each SSID, I don't want to have to go into each individual site's SSID and manually change the password every time.

 

Thanks in advance.

Use a template

Kind of a big deal

Another way of doing it, without migrating your networks to a template is the API:

@Shadius : To change the password of an SSID in the Template. You need to first grab the config Template ID using (https://developer.cisco.com/meraki/api-v1/#!get-organization-config-templates)

Once you have the template for which you want the SSID password to be changed, fetch the "SSID number" ( https://developer.cisco.com/meraki/api-v1/#!get-network-wireless-ssids  ) 

Use the "SSID number" along with the necessary password parameters and pass them in a PUT request to update it as you need. This would update it for all the networks bound to that particular template

This is good to get the template and then change the SSID on the template via API call.

Trying doing a Google for a script.  I tried "Meraki script psk change", and found this Powershell version.

I haven't used it myself or checked it.  But I bet you can find something someone has written to do this.
