Meraki webhooks are a powerful and lightweight way to subscribe to alerts sent from the Meraki Cloud when something happens. They include an API style message in machine and human-readable JSON, and are sent to a unique URL where they can be processed, stored or used to trigger powerful automations.






Webhooks support all configurable alert types available in dashboard under Network-wide > Alerts. This includes a variety of alerts for all product types that you own or operate. The webhooks architecture consists of the Meraki cloud and a cloud-accessible HTTPS receiver (server). There are a variety of standalone cloud webhook services (e.g. hook.io, Zapier, etc.) that are able to receive and/or forward webhooks.

Note: As of August 20, 2019, non-HTTPS receivers are no longer supported.
