Global Overview public beta is live and accessible to all customers as part of our Next Generation Dashboard initiative. This was built for customers that have more than one organization and has new features based on the feedback we have received from many of our customers.
With Global Overview, you can see the general health of all your organizations on one page as well as the current status of different devices and licenses for each organization. This provides an easy way to see what needs attention now and what might need attention in the near future. Users can add new organizations seamlessly, either net new or by cloning an existing organization. Users can also capture this information by exporting onto a CSV file for further action.
This is another example of how Meraki helps you do more in less time to keep your enterprise running optimally.
Including in the release are :
Actionable Hyperlinks - Cross links to other pages - License status
Added Features - Unused License column - Export to CSV - More Status Filters Usability Improvements - Distinguished icons - Device status - Improved user flow to add organization
How to opt in
The Global Overview can be accessed from the MSP Portal page. When navigating to the MSP Portal for the first time there is a popup that asks if you want to try the new Global Overview. After this popup has been dismissed, you can click on "view new version" to try the Global Overview at any time.
How to provide feedback
We really care about your feedback, and have implemented the get feedback tool on the Global Overview. There is a tab on the right hand side of the screen that says “Beta Feedback” this can be used to provide feedback as shown below.
The beta feedback tag can be found on the right side of the screen.
Users will be prompted to provide either generic feedback, or specific feedback.
If specific feedback is selected, the user can then highlight the exact part of the page they wish to provide feedback on.

What are the firmware management endpoints?
These endpoints are network level endpoints that allow you to get, set or rollback firmware. This will allow an admin to fully manage firmware at a network level via API.
Why manage firmware via API?
Managing via API enables admins to better scale their firmware upgrades and rollbacks en masse using action batches. Before this launch, customers were able to schedule and manage their firmware only through the Dashboard UI. Using APIs we can now programmatically control firmware upgrades across networks and organizations. Automating these processes via API helps accelerate current, standard firmware adoption and is part of our API-first strategy.
How do I use firmware management via API?
Documentation has been updated in dashboard and is available for all admins. This can be found under the v1 endpoints and is labeled as “Firmware rollback” and “Firmware upgrades”. This will cover the sample request, sample response and parameters for the endpoints.

@PhilipDAth , This functionality has been thoroughly tested and the feature has been confirmed across shards and on the MSP portal with good results. I can take a quick look if you want to DM me the email that you are seeing issues on but if you are running into issues it would be best to open up a ticket with support and I will make sure that it gets looked at. Thank you for testing and the quick feedback!

Cross Organizational MAC search is live for all customers. This functionality allows for customers to search across multiple organizations for a full MAC address.
What is Cross Org MAC search?
Cross org MAC search enables Meraki customers to search for a full MAC address across organizations. This functionality has been built on top of our existing Dashboard search feature. This is an important functionality for customers with multiple organizations.
Before this implementation if a customer had more than one organizations as part of their set up, they would have to go into each organization one by one to search for a particular MAC address. With the new functionality our customers can search across all organizations for clients using the search bar. The added functionality once more makes searching for a MAC Meraki simple!
How do I use Cross Org MAC search?
As shown in the screenshot below, you can locate a client by searching for the associated MAC address from the search bar of any organization that your user is tied to:
