API: add a managed device into panorama

Hi,

I'm looking for the correct syntax to add a new managed device (serial number) into panorama, using API.

I tried lots of stuffs, but without success.

Does anybody can help me? or is it simply not supported?

Thx in advance,

Olivier

The call to add a firewall with serial number 12345 is:

/api/?type=config&action=set&xpath=/config/mgt-config/devices&element=<entry name="12345"/>

If you're curious how I ended up finding the syntax, I used Web UI Debug to look at the call that was done when I added the serial number.

Hi,

 

I alreaydy tried this syntax, I got an error:

"a duplicate parameter was found in the argument string (name)"

 

I am pushing the API request from Ansible via a curl command.

If i do it from the shell directly, I got HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

 

Have you tested it ?

I used WebUI, CLI debug and API Browser to search if I missed something:

 

WEBui;

<request cmd="add" obj="/config/mgt-config/devices" cookie="2012481505869557" target="panorama">
  <entry name="111111111111111"/>
</request>

 

CLI:

<request cmd="set" obj="/config/mgt-config/devices" cookie="3769490762205842"><entry name='111111111111111'/></request>

 

cmd action is different, but both work. Only from API I cannot get it working :(

Did you try the API call I provided? I verified that worked on my firewall.

Can you provide the API call that you're using, minus the key and IP address?

Re: API: add a managed device into panorama

I use this API call:

 

curl -k -v "https://<panorama_ip>/api/?type=config&action=set&key=<my_key>&xpath=/config/mgt-config/devices&element=<entry name='111111111111111'/>"

Interesting. I was testing previously using the browser, which worked fine. Curl does not work for this command for me, however. It returns a 404 error. I also tried the python requests library, which does work as well.

 

Are you also seeing a 404 returned?

Yes: I got HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

 

Sounds like cURL is not sending it correctly :/

maybe because of the space between entry and name ??? wrong encoding?

Re: API: add a managed device into panorama

Good catch. Replacing that space with a %20 caused the command to succeed.

response status=\"success\" !!

 

yes !! %20 did it. Thanks a lot for your help !! I can continue to script crazy stuffs :)
