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.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.  

Connecting IoT Devices to a Registration Server (Packet Tracer, Cisco)

In Packet Tracer, a demo software made by Cisco Systems. It certainly has changed a lot since 2016. It's almost an Olympic feat to even get started with it now, but it does look snazzy. This is for the new CCNA, that integrates, among other things, IoT and Automation, which I've worked on here before. Instructions here . I don't know if this is an aspect of "Let's make sure people are paying attention and not simply following blindly", or an oversight - The instructions indicate a Meraki Server, when a regular one is the working option here. I have to enable the IoT service on this server. Also, we assign the server an IPv4 address from a DHCP pool instead of giving it a static one. For something that handles our IoT business, perhaps that's safer; Getting a new IPv4 address every week or so is a minimal step against an intruder, but it is a step. There are no devices associated with this new server; In an earlier lab (not shown), I attached them to 'H
