Mapping Cisco DNA Spaces Maps to PlaceOS Zones

To configure a map id to a zone
  • in Backoffice execute DNA_Spaces.seen_locations
this will return a list of space ids against space names that DNA spaces has sent so far
"location-7864e7": "IXCDubai",
"location-b9a0bf": "Cisco MEA Centers ",
"location-9e6c2a": "MEA IXC",
"location-cd46cf": "Cisco IXC",
"location-3e0256": "Riyadh CBC",
"location-be78b7": "Cisco System - Riyadh"
  • configure the following settings in the Cisco DNA Spaces driver:
# Level name here is just for your documentation
# the driver will use the zone name config
level_name: Cisco MEA Centers
building: zone-GAsXV0nc4eS
level: zone-GAsmleHgRaO
# ideally the maps uploaded by the client have no padding, if they do
# then this information may need to be manually defined - ideally the maps
# in DNA Spaces and PlaceOS are the same maps
offset_x: 70
offset_y: 25
map_width: 230
map_height: 130
level_name: Cisco System - Riyadh
