Overview of Location Hierarchy
In Cisco DNA Spaces, you can import the locations in the same structure in which you have defined in your wireless network such as Cisco Unified Wireless Network (Cisco AireOS or Cisco Catalyst) or Cisco Meraki.
Each Cisco DNA Spaces customer is provided with a default customer name (root name), and this customer name acts as the root location of Cisco DNA Spaces location hierarchy. You can import the locations in the same structure in which they are defined in Cisco Unified Wireless Network or Cisco Meraki. For Cisco Unified Wireless Network, you can use Cisco DNA Spaces even without installing the Cisco CMX. However, this option will be having certain restrictions for the location hierarchy structure.
As Cisco DNA Spaces provides universal account, you can import and manage the locations of both Cisco Unified Wireless Network and Cisco Meraki. However, the wireless network specified when creating your customer account will be your base network. A proximity rule can include the locations of both Cisco Unified Wireless Network and Cisco Meraki.
You can create proximity rules such as captive portal rule, engagement rule, and profile rule, and view access points, BLE beacons, users, and child locations for any location in the location hierarchy. The number of access points, BLE beacons, proximity rules, child locations, and users for each location in the location hierarchy are displayed against that particular location. For example, the number of proximity rules, child locations, and users for a group are shown against that group in the location hierarchy. The count of these location parameters are shown in a cumulative manner.
