Communicating with the Meraki dashboard is possible even if the device on the network being managed is not available. If the Meraki MX device is not available, the Meraki dashboard saves the changes and deploys the changes to the device in the same way that it does when you make changes directly to the dashboard.
Cisco Defense Orchestrator (CDO) allows you to manage Meraki dashboards. These are the features we support for those devices:
- Onboard a Meraki device to Defense Orchestrator. You can use an API key to securely onboard a Cisco MX device.
- Create Access Control rules. You can create and deploy new rules to a managed MX device. Once deployed, these rules
- Manage existing rules. You can finetune new or existing rules with objects.
