Asset Tracking app, do I need AppMaker?

Hi experts,


I have a customer interested in the Aruba Asset Tracking solution. Working on this and doing the BoM, I realized that within the "Aruba Meridian Mobile App Platform" item in Iris, I need "Maps" and "Asset Tracking", but do I need AppMaker?

It seems I don't according to the Meridian docs prerequisites and this Arubapedia Tech Note. So do I will have something like this without AppMaker?


According to the Tag Assets with the Tags App document: Once an Asset Tag has been deployed using the Aruba Tags app, the tagged asset can be tracked on a map using the Aruba Tags app, the Meridian Editor, and the Meridian SDK.

Aruba Tags app is a free app, so can I use the Aruba Tags app not only for provisioning, but also also for tracking and finding my assets on a map, can't I?

And also I can track my assets on the Meridian Editor, which I will have without the AppMaker part number, right?

I have looked for this but the documentation on this is somewhat confusing.


Thanks in advance,

For sizing and product selection, please use your local Aruba Sales team to make sure that you offer the correct items to your customers.


For Asset Tracking you can also use the Meridian WebSDK as an additional option.

If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC (click for contact details).

AppMaker is not required for the Aruba Asset Tags solution. AppMaker is a service to help you build an App for Mobile Engagement (Wayfinding with BluDot, Navigation) that is seperately uploaded to the App Stores.


The Tags application is what you're after and is enabled with the Asset Tracking subscription.
