Creating a Meraki Dashboard Account

If it is the first time using Meraki Dashboard you will need to create a new account. If you already have an account you may skip this step

Organizations provide administrative containers for different networks which contain similar devices like access points, switches, or security appliances. Within an Organization, you can create multiple networks which contain devices from different sites and locations. Multiple organizations can be linked together under a single login by using the same username and password when creating a new account/organization.


Creating a Dashboard Account

Note: Administrator access to more than one organization with the same dashboard username will automatically enable the MSP portal. Additional information will be provided on the MSP Portal in the next section.
  1. Go to Recommended browsers include Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
  2. Click on Create an account.
  3. Fill in the fields presented.
    • Email – This e-mail address will become the Organization admin and will have access to all of the networks created within the Organization. This email account will be referred to as an MSP admin account in future modules.
    • Full name – The name of the person/group managing the account.
    • Password – The password that will be used to login to dashboard. This must be at least 8 characters long.  Dashboard will give you feedback on the strength of the password chosen.
