Ansible for interfaces on PA

The ansible module "panos_interface" doesn't seem to have all the parameters that shoud should be availble for an interface.


I need to create *many* sub-interfaces, assing tags, vlans, and zones to each.  Was hoping to do this with ansible since that's our automation platform.  


Any thoughts on the best way to do this with ansible?  Maybe load_cfg or some other strategy?

Ansible was never meant to cover 100% of the API as that is not purpose of it. However we do want to get 60-70% coverage for the common automation tasks and we belive we are close. What is that you are missing from current Ansible modules? Can you please submit request here ( and we will consider it for enhancement.
