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.
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 Lumeta||Lumeta 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 Lumeta||Lumeta 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.|
