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
    building: zone-GAsXV0nc4eS
    level: zone-GAsdb~1fk5m
