Connect your Meraki organization to Boundless

Before adding your Meraki API key to the Boundless Platform, there are a couple of steps you should follow first:

Step 1 | Enable your Meraki API Key

You can create your Meraki API key from the Meraki Dashboard.

But before doing so, first and foremost you need to make sure that you have the Dashboard API Access enabled for your Meraki organization

You can do so by clicking on Organization → Settings, and scrolling down until you see the sub-section Dashboard API Access.

Check the box where it says "Enable access to the Cisco Meraki Dashboard API". Then click on Save Changes.

Step 2 | Generate your Meraki API Key

Once enabled, you can generate your new API key (if you haven't done so already). This can be done on your Profile.

Just scroll down to Generate new API key (once generated, make sure you save your API key in a safe place, as you can't retrieve it again once leaving this page).

If you need any additional guidance, check out the short video we've prepared to show you how to do it.
