The Access points, Clients, and Network list pages in the Meraki Dashboard all have search capabilities, which enable an administrator to find or filter a list of APs or wireless devices with tremendous flexibility and ease. Any string can be entered; the Meraki cloud will attempt to match on that string across all available fields. For example, an administrator can search/filter by device description, Ethernet address, or IP address. In addition, searches can be bookmarked for future use.
The search tool also supports a number of keywords, which can be used to search/filter by specific characteristics. For example, an administrator can search/filter on a combination of strings, usage data, or mesh hop count. All of the available keyword options are outlined in the Search Terms section below.
- Enter any value in to the search omnibox for an instant search result
- Use conditional operators to separate multiple search queries (AND, OR)
- Use a wildcard to search for more general results ( * )
