CMX API Documentation


The Cisco Meraki CMX API is a powerful resource. When combined with a map of access points in dashboard, the CMX API will report client locations as devices traverse a given floorplan. The location API delivers data in real-time from the Meraki cloud and can be used to detect WiFi devices (associated and non-associated) in real-time. The elements are exported via an HTTP POST of JSON data to a specified destination server. The raw data is aggregated from all access points within a network on the Meraki cloud, and sent directly from the cloud to an organization's data warehouse or business intelligence center. The JSON posts occur frequently, typically batched every minute for each AP.
