Configuration change logging options

Hi all,

We'd like to implement some detailed config change logging from the PA device, preferably using the API.

Ideally, it would contain some/most/all of the fields seen in Monitoring->Logs->Configuration.

While we currently have syslog setup which records most of what we need, the above "Before Change" and "After Change" diff comparison would be advantageous.

Our suspicion is that the granularity of the logging seen in the above-mentioned location is an internal thing and not exportable  (other than actually exporting via the CSV file mentioned on the page, but to do this in an automated fashion would require screen-scraping, etc..).  I have looked at the REST API reference, but cannot find a path that enables us to do what we're after.

Any advice welcome!

thanks

Here's what I got.

[Query]

## 100 logs (nglos) in this case. Replace "APIKEY".

https://hostname/api/?type=log&log-type=config&nlogs=100&key=APIKEY

<response status="success" code="19">

<result>

<msg>

<line>query job enqueued with jobid 596</line>

</msg>

<job>596</job>

</result>

</response>

[Retrieve logs]

## job-id 596 is from the output above.

https://hostname/api?/type=log&action=get&job-id=596&key=APIKEY

<before-change-preview>

radmin { permissions { role-based { superuser yes; } } }

</before-change-preview>

<after-change-preview>

radmin { permissions { role-based { custom { profile testrole; }

</after-change-preview>
