networkId

string

NetworkId path parameter. Network ID.

number

string

Number path parameter.

rules

list / elements=dictionary

An array of traffic shaping rules. Rules are applied in the order that they are specified in. An empty list (or null) means no rules. Note that you are allowed a maximum of 8 rules.

definitions

list / elements=dictionary

A list of objects describing the definitions of your traffic shaping rule. At least one definition is required.

type

string

The type of definition. Can be one of ‘application’, ‘applicationCategory’, ‘host’, ‘port’, ‘ipRange’ or ‘localNet’.

value

string

If “type” is ‘host’, ‘port’, ‘ipRange’ or ‘localNet’, then “value” must be a string, matching either a hostname (e.g. “somesite.com”), a port (e.g. 8080), or an IP range (“192.1.0.0”, “192.1.0.0/16”, or “10.1.0.0/16 80”). ‘localNet’ also supports CIDR notation, excluding custom ports. If “type” is ‘application’ or ‘applicationCategory’, then “value” must be an object with the structure { “id” “meraki layer7/…” }, where “id” is the application category or application ID (for a list of IDs for your network, use the trafficShaping/applicationCategories endpoint).

dscpTagValue

integer

The DSCP tag applied by your rule. Null means ‘Do not change DSCP tag’. For a list of possible tag values, use the trafficShaping/dscpTaggingOptions endpoint.

pcpTagValue

integer

The PCP tag applied by your rule. Can be 0 (lowest priority) through 7 (highest priority). Null means ‘Do not set PCP tag’.

perClientBandwidthLimits

dictionary

An object describing the bandwidth settings for your rule.

bandwidthLimits

dictionary

The bandwidth limits object, specifying the upload (‘limitUp’) and download (‘limitDown’) speed in Kbps. These are only enforced if ‘settings’ is set to ‘custom’.

limitDown

integer

The maximum download limit (integer, in Kbps).

limitUp

integer

The maximum upload limit (integer, in Kbps).

settings

string

How bandwidth limits are applied by your rule. Can be one of ‘network default’, ‘ignore’ or ‘custom’.

trafficShapingEnabled

boolean

Whether traffic shaping rules are applied to clients on your SSID.

Choices:

  • false

Notes

Note

  • SDK Method used are wireless.Wireless.update_network_wireless_ssid_traffic_shaping_rules,

  • Paths used are put /networks/{networkId}/wireless/ssids/{number}/trafficShaping/rules,

  • Does not support check_mode

  • The plugin runs on the control node and does not use any ansible connection plugins, but instead the embedded connection manager from Cisco DNAC SDK

  • The parameters starting with dnac_ are used by the Cisco DNAC Python SDK to establish the connection
