I'm looking into the alternative for our existing customer, who is using Cisco Meraki. And one of the use case requires user creation via RESTful API. Is there any programmable way to accomplish that?

Dear Shogo,
Not yet. Let us know what your top use cases are for using the restful APis (you mentioned user creations - as in - admin users or guest users?). If you want to use Cloudpath with Rucksu Cloud, Cloudpath allows APIs to create users today and they will work well with Ruckus Cloud. 

thanks

 Currently, North bound APIs are available from Ruckus Cloud to facilitate external captive portal integration to a third-party captive portal vendor. See link https://support.ruckuswireless.com/documents/2403-configuring-ruckus-cloud-wi-fi-hotspot-wispr-api-r...

I can't understand how a cloud product doesn't have APIs.  APIs shouldn't be the frosting on the cake but the ingredients essential to a good cake.

Derek,

You are right. When we say APIs not available, they are there (both streaming and RESTful) but we are working to build the infrastructure around it so that customers and partners can use them and we are able to scale to help them with all the tooling and support they need to use them. 

All the cloud Web UI and mobile app use the same APIs - so, every element (config, read, report, notifications...) are API driven. It is a matter of when we release them to the public (after building a solid support infrastructure around it). Stay tuned.

Cheers

Do you have a release estimate.  This thread is over a year old.  We have a mutual customer and we support Zone Director and SmartZone but Cloud -- the newest product -- is the one that doesn't have the capabilities.

Thanks for asking!!!!  The API that we require is:   clients/_operations/get-clients-info2

which is used to populate the users view in Cloud.

I will add, we use the following interfaces on the other platforms:

On ZD: we use the CLI: wlaninfo -S -V
On SZ: we use the API: /operational/client
