Release notes - September 2023
23.9 includes single key discovery for Cisco Meraki SD-WAN, switches and now WiFi. WiFi charts on the details page have also been updated.
As with Cisco Meraki SD-WAN devices, uplinks, tunnels, performance tests and switches, it's now possible to choose to discover Wireless Access Points via the same method - entering an API key. APs are available on the Admin Controllers page and can be moved to another location if needed.

- Drag across a chart to zoom in to a particular time period
- See other charts aligned to the same timescale so you can quickly recognise the impact of an event
