For Lumeta customers who have expressed interest in sending more complete device profile data to their Cisco Meraki Management Station, Lumeta now provides that capability through an API call. Device information from your Meraki platform to Lumeta.

How It Works

The Process

  1. Configure the Meraki integration in Lumeta.
  2. The Lumeta system calls the Meraki API and processes its response. A device is either created or updated in Lumeta based on the information gathered.

    IF the device . . .THEN . . .AND . . .
    Does not exist on LumetaLumeta records the response with scan type "external" and adds the device to the Lumeta database. A device created by Meraki APIs follows same algorithm for target generation as any other scan type

    Adds the attribute "externalSource" with the value "Meraki Management Station"

    Generates a target as though it were and following the same algorithm any other device discovered in Lumeta.

    Already exists on LumetaLumeta retains the device. The response entry on Lumeta includes the Lumeta scan type (e.g., Host Discovery) and "external" for the Meraki scan type. Lumeta Device Details shows both Host and External as the discovery scan type.

Get Devices from Meraki

To get list of devices managed by Meraki . . .

Enhance Device Data on Lumeta

To enhance/enrich device data on Lumeta from devices returned by Meraki . . .

Enhance Device Details on Lumeta

Record interface information returned by Meraki and display them in Device Details

Retrieve information on :

  • Network
  • Device
  • Interface
  • Meraki source identifier called out in Lumeta Device Details.
  • Meraki-inflected device fingerprints, identification, and confidence-rankings.

  • Meraki-sourced devices and CIDRs can be added to Lumeta Target List and Lumeta Eligible List.


  1. Enable the SNMP parameter on your Meraki devices to allow responses to Lumeta queries.
  2. The user generating the API access key must have organizational-level read access.

How To

  1. Log in.

Configuring the Meraki Integration in Lumeta

Meraki integration will be configured from Settings→Integrations

Meraki integration is be configured as follows:

  1. Log in to Lumeta as an admin or user with superuser privileges.

  2. On the main menu, browse to Settings > Integrations  > Other Solutions > Cisco Meraki.

  3. Complete the configuration form with a polling interval, API access key. Power on the integration only when you are ready to enable the connection. 

    1. The checkboxes enable you to configure the integration to be zone-specific or global. However, it is better to create the device in one or only a few zones to  minimize the system overhead necessary to create or update a found device in multiple zones.

  4. Click Submit to save the configuration.
