pan.xapi no response

Why am I not getting response when using pan.xapi vs panxapi.py?

 

from python interpretor:

 

api_sess = pan.xapi.PanXapi(hostname="10.209.32.33",api_username="myusername", api_password="mypassword",api_key='mykey')

 

api_sess..show(xpath = "/config/devices/entry/deviceconfig/system/hostname")

 

*returns no ouptput however using panxapi.py I expected results.

 

python panxapi.py -h 10.209.32.33 -l myusername -xr -s "/config/devices/entry/deviceconfig/system/hostname"
Password:
show: success
<hostname>myhostname</hostname>

Re: pan.xapi no response

Hi,

 

1) no need to specify api_username and api_password when api_key is specified

 

2) should handle exceptions

 

3) to see request XML response use for example:
