Create or Edit a Meraki Network Object or Network Group

About MX Network Objects

MX devices use the same format as Firepower and ASA network objects and can contain a host name, an IP address or a subnet address expressed in CIDR notation. Network groups are a collection of network objects and other individual addresses or subnets you add to the group. Network objects and network groups are used in access rules. You can create, read, update, and delete network objects and network groups using CDO.
