Custom Network Enrollment Strings

Overview

A network enrollment string allows end users to access their organization’s enrollment portal (m.meraki.com) or self-service portal (portal.meraki.com) using a known and recognizable network identifier. Network enrollment strings are unique to each Systems Manager network and can be used as a substitute for the randomly-generated 10-digit network ID. 

 

 

Network enrollment strings are case insensitive and must follow these guidelines:

  • Must be 4 or more characters in length
  • Cannot exceed 50 characters in length
  • Cannot include any of the following characters: ;:@=&$!‘“,?.(){}[]\*+/#<>|^%
  • Cannot be a 10 digit string
  • Cannot follow the format XXX-XXX-XXXX where X represents a digit
