If you have a lot of beacons it can be useful to take a look at the information related to them over time in your own way. An easy way to manipulate and filter the data is within a spreadsheet. On writing this note there was no way to export beacons data within the GUI so an easy way to get at it is via the Meridian API. To do this you can use python.
This note assumes you have some basic knowledge of using python. Check out these resources to get started: Python and REST APIs 1: Building a work environment, Python and REST APIs 2: GET Data and Python and REST APIs 3: POST Data
NOTE: It's important to understand the API as much as possible before using it beyond the scope of this article. Data can be overwritten with the API and so caution should be taken. Also, Only documented APIs are supported by Aruba. https://docs.meridianapps.com/hc/en-us/articles/360039670174-REST-API
The API to use is the Locations Beacons API Endpoint.
Break it Down:
This python could be adapted to gather information about other Meridian objects defined for the location such as Placemarks.
