Using the Meraki Dashboard API with Postman

Instructions: Here.

I could have opened up my Macbook (Because Postman was already on there), but no, I'm here, and here is what we're gonna do.

Oddly, the installer executable loaded *behind* my browser window and froze it, so I had to restart. A short time later, Postman is installed and operational.





Value updated. Would we normally display the value like this?



 I do so here because well, it's publicly available on the DevNet site.

 Getting the organization ID took a little time. See the URL bar to the right of SEND?


I had copied and pasted in the full URL from the instructions, telling it to look for a path that didn't exist. Now I have the organization ID; Thanks to this handy tutorial from the Postman staff.
Listed networks in an organization. We use the found ID and the URL.



Update Serial and NetworkID:


Get the idea yet?


You can replace the values in the fields marked {{networkId}} or {{serialId}}, but take a look at this;


The value is already held.

I'm not a hardcore developer, so that's about the gist of it. Now I know the basics of how to fetch information of individual devices on specific networks.


EMPLOYERS: Whoo, I can follow instructions clearly laid out! Big deal, I know. Check out my Ubuntu work for actual problem solving and researching.

Wireless Diagnostics on Mac OS; Packet Sniffing on a WLAN

There's a post sitting in my drafts about Wireshark and how to sniff packets out of the air that was going to be about sniffing for authentication packets for Wi-Fi hotspots that aren't broadcasting SSID (Which you shouldn't do apparently!

So when he said "Just open up Wireless Diagnostics and sniff your network (check your width and channel)." It was shocking to me.
