Integrating Cisco Meraki with BetterCloud

Follow

When integrating a new application with your BetterCloud instance, the overall installation process is consistent. However, each integration is different, and may require varying levels and types of authentication. This article provides instructions for configuring and collecting all the information you need in order to add the Cisco Meraki integration in BetterCloud.

BetterCloud requires the following authentication type when integrating with Cisco Meraki:

  • API Token

After saving the integration, you will then need to enter the following information in your integration’s environment variables before your configuration will be complete:

  • merakiUniqueDomainName

API Token

If you have not previously configured dashboard API access, you will need to do so from the organization settings page.

Scroll down to locate the “Dashboard API access” section and enable the API.

Once the API is enabled, you will need to create an API key. This process can be carried out in the “My profile” section of your account.

Under the API access section, click “Generate new API key.”

You will be presented with your API key. Make sure to copy the key before leaving the page, as you will not be able to access it again. Meraki requires you to check the box indicating you have stored your new key prior to closing the pop-up.

Enter your API token.

Unique Domain Name

Cisco Meraki API calls are made to endpoints that begin with https://<api>.meraki.com. Under merakiUniqueDomainName, please enter the string you see between "https://" and ".meraki.com"

Once you have successfully added the integration, your API Token can be updated at any time from your integration’s basic information, and your Unique Domain Name will be present as an encrypted environment variable.
