Known Affected platforms: All

Description: The Meraki API has limited functionality and doesn’t provide all the necessary data for the IP Fabric model. The following are known limitations:

  • Multiple Meraki devices can have the same public IP
  • CDP/LLDP might be not linked between devices correctly as reported port ID doesn’t allow it
  • CDP/LLDP timespan is 2h, so it might not show actual state
  • ARP is missing, MAC table is reconstructed from endpoints
  • DHCP/STATIC doesn’t provide IP mask
  • STP is missing
  • Routing table static routes only for Firewalls
  • Pathlookup is not working because forwarding tables are not provided
  • Can’t add Meraki device into snapshot (refresh works)
  • Limited snapshot – Meraki tasks will be always downloaded
  • MX firewall uplink ports – not possible to determine if traffic load balancing is enabled and/or which port is primary and backup
