Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are the Meraki admin accounts in other regions shared with Canada admin accounts? Can I see my Canada organizations and non-Canada organizations in Global Overview/MSP portal with the same login? 

No. The accounts created on the Canada dashboard are totally separate from non-Canada accounts and do not cross over or share any information or org membership information. Global Overview/MSP portal only supports for organization within the Canada region, but not across with the other regions.
