Updating Meraki MX Connection Credentials

About Updating Meraki MX Connection Credentials

If you generate a new API key from the Meraki dashboard, you must update the connection credentials in CDO. To generate a new key, see Generate and Retrieve Meraki API Key for more information.

Update Meraki MX Connection Credentials

  1. From the CDO menu bar, click Devices & Services.
  2. Select the Meraki MX whose connection credentials you want to update.  
  3. In the Device Actions pane, click Update Credentials.
  4. Do not change the SDC association. 
  5. Enter the new API key.

Note: If CDO fails to sync the device, the connectivity status in CDO may show "Invalid Credentials." If that's the case, you may have tried to use an API key. Confirm the API key for the selected Meraki MX is correct.
