Use ansible or XML to create Securities profiles actions

Hello guys, does anybody know how to use ansible or other Palo alto automation tool to create a security profile?  eg. a new URL filtering where I will decide what is deny and what is just alert to log? 

 

I saw that we can pass a profile as a parameter to create a rule, but I can't find how to define my own profiles.

@gleidsoncampos ,

Are you looking to create a profile-group in XML or simply specify the profiles individually?

 

The XML attached to the security rulebase entry would look like the following if you specify profiles individually

                  <profile-setting>
                    <profiles>
                      <url-filtering>
                        <member>alert-all</member>
                      </url-filtering>
                    </profiles>
                  </profile-setting>

 Or it would look like the following if you utilize groups:

                  <profile-setting>
                    <group>
                      <member>Standard-Protection-Profile</member>
                    </group>
                  </profile-setting>

 

 

Or if you are looking to specify a new profile completely it really depends on what type of profile you are actually creating, so as in your example it would look something like the following. 

              <entry name="alert-all">
                <enable-container-page>yes</enable-container-page>
                <description>tap-zone</description>
                <log-container-page-only>yes</log-container-page-only>
                <credential-enforcement>
                  <mode>
                    <disabled/>
                  </mode>
                  <log-severity>medium</log-severity>

                  </block>
