Managed Service Providers (MSPs) typically manage multiple Dashboard organizations at once, where each organization has its own licensing and set of devices. As a best practice, MSPs may opt to use features such as configuration templates or branding to easily deploy new networks within an organization. Should an MSP want to create a new organization with the same administrators, templates, branding, etc. as an existing organization, a new org can be cloned from the old one.
Combined networks is a new view in Dashboard that is intended to make configuration and monitoring of related dashboard networks easier. For customers that have a combination of MRs, MSs and a MX in the same physical network topology we recommend combining the individual Dashboard networks into one combined network to simplify management and monitoring.
Dashboard networks provide a way to logically group and configure Cisco Meraki access points, security appliances, switches, and Systems Manager within an Organization. Devices in the same network can be configured and monitored in the same way. Dashboard networks are also a useful way to separate physically distinct sites within an Organization. This Knowledge Base article describes how to create and delete networks.
The purpose of this article is to demonstrate how to create a new Account/Organization in Dashboard. Organizations provide administrative containers for different networks which contain similar devices like access points, switches, or security appliances. Within an Organization you can create multiple networks which contain devices from different sites and locations.
Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can now take advantage of custom branding options within the Cisco Meraki Dashboard. This allows MSPs to customize certain aspects of Dashboard for their users and customers. This article will provide an overview of the options available, how they are applied, and an example.
There are some circumstances where an organization needs to be deleted, typically to remove a defunct account or an org that was created on accident. This article walks through requirements and steps to delete an organization from Dashboard.
The basic structure of Dashboard consists of two levels: Networks - Contains Cisco Meraki devices, their configurations, statistics, and any client-device information. Organizations - A collection of networks that are all part of a single organizational entity, such as a company or school district. Administrator accounts can then access multiple organizations and the networks they contain, as long as an account exists in each organization with the same e-mail address.
Empty Dashboard networks can be largely configured before bringing Cisco Meraki devices online or adding a device to the network. Specifically, the Cloud Controller will save configurations made in advance and push them to the proper Cisco Meraki devices whenever they establish Cloud connectivity on the appropriate Dashboard network. This is useful when an administrator will be unavailable during the time of device installation.
In a Dashboard Organization, there may be many networks containing many different devices. These networks should be named appropriately for ease of management. This article will cover how to change the name of any network or organization in Dashboard.
Some features of Dashboard span the entire Organization/Dashboard account. This may not be ideal for Managed Service Providers who administer the network infrastructure of separate business entities. As a best practice, the MSP may wish to create individual Dashboard accounts for each company they manage.
