PAN-DB API for URL Re-categorization

I apologize if this has been asked before, but I could only find some posts from 2014.

 

Is there an API for PAN-DB that allows for automated submissions for URL re-categorization?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

How do you want to perform "automated submissions" ? on which criteria ??

You can find python script on github (https://github.com/stealthllama/pandb-query/blob/master/pandb-query.py).

Maybe you can make some changes on it for re-categorization ..

Thanks Vince,

 

I did see some posts about how to do bulk lookups via the NGFW (thank you for the link to the python script). However, it's not bulk category lookups I'm interested in but rather a programmatic way to submit URLs to Palo Alto for re-categorization for the full benefit of any customer using PAN-DB. Today, the only way I'm aware of is to submit them manually via https://urlfiltering.paloaltonetworks.com/.

 

For example, what I had envisioned was a way to submit confirmed phishing URLs to PAN-DB to have the "Phishing" category added.

Thanks Vince,

 

We do use EDLs and MineMeld today. URL custom categories are another great recommendation to accomplish this. I appreciate the information and was just poking around to see if someone knew of a way to automate URL re-categorization directly to PAN-DB for the benefit of the community as a whole.

Not sure if this is a recent addition or if I just missed it previously - but I do see that there is a page for bulk re-categorization requests. This should serve my purpose for now if there is no API available.
