API - Listing Device Group Addresses by Location

Hi all,


In exploring the XML API, I have come across a stumbling block.


What I'm attempting to sort out is under the Objects tab > Addresses in the side panel.


I have some addresses as Shared, and others that are not shared objects and specific to a location. What I'm ultimately wanting to do is query just the objects that are not shared versus ones that are, and do some data comparisons.


There didn't seem to be a clear way to do this via the API for non-shared objects, but I can get shared objects through an HTTP GET like:


Is there a similar means of getting that information for non-shared objects specific to a device group location?


Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

The shared address objects are found under that path. The other objects would be found under the path for the vsys they correspond to (in a single-vsys environment, it would be vsys1). For example:



would be the xpath for address objects in vsys1.

So if you're not using vsys there's no other method of getting that information programmatically?

 @nigelswift, I realized the @[name='vsys1'] could just be any device group name. Was a bit confused at first.
