Authorization error updating Cisco Meraki plugin


Article ID: 255786


Updated On:


CA Virtual Network Assurance DX NetOps


Unable to add additional org id in VNA. Trying to add an additional region in VNA but getting an error. Here is the field I edited from the configuration-

 "ORGANIZATION_ID_LIST": "[630485,799968]"

Using DX NetOps Virtual Network Assurance (VNA) release 21.2.11

Gathered the plugin configuration, edited the variable and then tried to update the configuration. It returned this error:

Meraki Plugin : Authentication Failure , Please check specified username or password in plugin configuration


All supported DX NetOps Virtual Network Assurance releases


Reuse of the encrypted MERAKI_API_KEY value returned by the GET request for the plugin configuration.


The GET request for a plugin will return an encrypted string to protect the API key, thus helping to increase security and protect access to the Meraki APIs.

When updating plugin configurations for VNA Cisco Meraki the MERAKI_API_KEY value submitted should be the current and valid API key retrieved from Meraki itself.

Additional Information

Note that the ORGANIZATION_ID_LIST variable is deprecated in 22.2.x and newer releases.

See the Configure to Filter Meraki Networks, Organizations, and Events section of the Cisco Meraki VNA documentation for new features that replaced the deprecated variable.
