Notes

Note

  • Module is not idempotent as the Meraki API is limited in what information it provides about configuration templates.
  • Meraki’s API does not support creating new configuration templates.
  • To use the configuration template, simply pass its ID via net_id parameters in Meraki modules.
  • More information about the Meraki API can be found at https://dashboard.meraki.com/api_docs.
  • Some of the options are likely only used for developers within Meraki.
