9.0 REST API - updating custom URL list unable to append

L0 Member

Hi Guys, 


First post on this forum - relitivly new to PAN however I am looking to automate the addition of new URLs to a custom URL catagory we have called "allowed_urls" - I figured I can do this via the RESI API - using the put method, I am using the requests library in python to achieve this. 


However my problem is that my exisiting list gets overwritten whenever I attempt to add a new member to the list. 


Please find my code below - apologies as this is my first venture into PAN and the PAN API world - is what I am doing possible? 


url_add = '<entry name="allowed_urls" location="vsys" vsys="vsys1"><list><member>*.testwebsite.co.uk</member></list><type>URL List</type></entry>'

add_url = requests.put(''+cookie+' ', data=url_add, verify=False)

If i send the above, my current "allowed_urls" list gets overwritten and all urls replaced with *.testwebiste.co,uk

This is the expected behavior 🙂


If you want to add a URL then do a GET to get the current config, then add in the new URL(s), then do the put with the combined information.
