Our Meridian team has taken a look at your screenshots and determined that this isn't a bug. It's expected behavior for different devices to display the map differently. Even the same device with different resolution settings would display things differently.
I hope this helps address your concerns.

The AS-100 should be provisioned and configured with the 'Beacons' app that is available from the Apple App Store. Configuration is done from the Meridian App platform (edit.meridianapps.com).
CLI configuration is not recommended, nor supported.
Please make sure that you updated the Beacons App to the latest version, and you are close to your sensor (within few feet/meter). If you have another IOS device available, it may work to retry with that. If you still have problems that the Beacons app does not communicate properly, please contact the HPE Aruba TAC.

Please double-check that you have set the Control points on all of your maps. To do so, go to maps, press the 'Edit' (pencil) for each map, and set the control points:
I know it sounds strange to link delays to not setting the control points, but I have seen it happen a few times.
As a guidance always set the control points first thing when you start doing work on a map.
thanks herman, the missing control points caused our problems.

You have two options of doing this. Radius based or authentication text based.
Let's assume, you have a radius server in the background. The portal needs to send back the information for username and password to the IAP. I created a sample pae for this:
<!doctype html> <html lang="de"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <title>External Captive Portal with Username</title> </head> <body> <form method="POST" action="https://securelogin.arubanetworks.com/swar
m.cgi"> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="authenticate" /> User Name: <br/> <input type="text" name="user" id="user"/> <br/> Password: <br/> <input type="password" name="password" id="password"/> <br/> <input type="submit" value="Login"/> </form> </body> </html>
After the IAP gets the username pasword it uses the radius server to authenticate the user.
I have created a description on my personal blog, have a looke here:

Hi, this is Shawn Kilburn. I am the technical writer for the Meridian team. I thought I'd jump in and answer your questions. My responses are in bold.
- The customer has a link on his app, which directs to his webpage. This is then displayed in the app. The webpage then has external links to other sites such as Facebook. Is it possible to limit this and make the external links open up in a browser instead. For example, I use the customers app, click on a link which directs me to their webpage and this is displayed within the app. I then click on facebook, which then also displays in the app. They would like to limit this so Facebook is not opened within the app. The reason behind this is because they do not want the app to turn into a browser.
+ This isn't possible in AppViewer, I'm afraid, but individual users can always choose to open external links in their system browser. If someone creates an app using the Meridian SDK, they could force this behavior.
When creating the app I know you either use the SDK or the web based editor. Is it possible to use both to create the app as some things work better using the SDK?
+ Both white-label and SDK Meridian-powered apps use the web-based Meridian Editor. The Meridian Editor provides the content for all Meridian-powered apps. White-label apps are based on the iOS and Android Meridian AppViewer codebase and provide a complete Meridian experience. We recommend this for customers that don't have experience developing iOS and Android apps or that don't have access to mobile developers. The SDK provides a lot more flexibility in terms of how an app looks and what features are available.
+ Would you mind clarifying what you mean by "some things work better using the SDK"? For Meridian functionality, there is no difference in performance between white-label and SDK apps, because they both use the SDK.
Is it possible to create your own placemarks using the editor instead of the SDK? The customer would like to create custom placemarks for his maps.
+ We recommend that customers use the Editor to create placemarks. It is possible to use the Meridian API to create placemarks.
I have read up on some aspects of the SDK and know you can integrate external systems in the app to provide more info to the users. Can you confirm if it is possible to use the SDK to import an external feed for the events? They would like events to be populated using an external feed. The customer advised me that this can be either RSS or using the API.
+ Events can be imported into the Meridian Editor via RSS and custom feeds. This is the recommended method.
For more information on Meridian, I'd recommend reviewing our documentation here: http://docs.meridianapps.com/help/intro_meridian
I hope this information proves helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Are you an Aruba partner, or working with one? I'd recommend looking at each component carefully with a partner or your local Aruba team.

- JW461AAE (SUB1-MR-SWF) yearly subscription for every 250,000 square feet
- PS-MER-MAP-1 ---- per map conversion (not sure a J number is available yet; work with your partner/Aruba team)
- JW313A (5 pack)
- JW314A (50 pack)
- JW315A (5 pack USB)
- JW316A (50 pack USB)
- PS-MER-APP --- 50 hours of application consulting services (not sure a J number is available yet; work with your partner/Aruba team)
- Push Notifications
- JW462AAE (10k 1yr sub)
- JW463AAE (50k 1yr sub)
- JW464AAE (100k 1yr sub)
- JW465AAE (250k 1yr sub)
- App Delivery
- SDK ---- JW466AAE (free)
- White Label app delivery ---- PS-MR-APP-BRD (not sure a J number is available yet; work with your partner/Aruba team)

My name is Shawn Kilburn and I'm the Meridian team's technical writer. I thought I'd jump in and answer your most recent questions.
1. Simply put, you don't need access points to use Aruba Beacons for location services and notifications. If you only have battery-powered Beacons, you can deploy them using the Aruba Beacons app (iOS-only). APs and controllers are necessary for the Meridian Editor's Beacons Management feature, but that's it.
2. The Meridian Editor includes a Reports feature that tracks things like the number of users using your Meridian-powered app, how many notifications were received, what search terms were used, and what routes were followed. This is done on the Meridian-powered app client side, so APs and controllers are not necessary.

Yes, anyone with Meridian Editor access can create new accounts.
To do this, in the sidebar menu click PERMISSIONS, and then click Add User +. Enter an email address, and then click OK. An email will be sent to that address with a link that will let that person create a Meridian Editor account.

The external trigger URL should receive and interprete the JSON data that Meridian sends to it. So you need some dedicated PHP script or web application there, instead of pointing it to an arbitrary web site.
I created a short video around this question that shows the data coming in from the Meridian cloud and a web-app responding to that. This video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIF4SqyQkdI
Hope that video answers your question.
Example data coming in from Meridian (note it comes in in json format, not the format below):
( [is_enter] => true [campaign_id] => 5647648723828736 [broadcaster_id] => 85BAEDEA-1ACE-404B-874D-29AC21C18D58:16005:17491 [device_id] => 318e22ed-7450-39a6-bbad-c6eb19d3b79b:com.arubanetw
And if I have an (OAUTH) authenticated request, it has an additional authentication_token:
( [is_enter] => true [access_token] => bf5268e4a9baa3835c5be135e4715073f93a559e [campaign_id] => 5647648723828736 [broadcaster_id] => 85BAEDEA-1ACE-404B-874D-29AC21C18D58:16005:17491 [device_id] => 3da7cf8c-7cae-3b71-8a73-d2a078c67744:com.arubanetw
The access_token can be used to lookup the user information (in my case my Name and e-mail) and use it on your server.
