Any way to change local user account password?

L3 Networker

Forgive me for this question as automation is an on-going learning thing for me.

 

I'm trying to determine the best way to automate the process of changing the password for a local account on my firewalls en masse rather than logging into each one individually and doing it manually.

Initially I thought Ansible, but after looking I am not sure there is the ability to do that with current modules.

 

Is it possible to do this through Ansible, XSoar, API calls, etc...?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Gareth.Doyle, I created this Ansible playbook for a similar previous query in this forum. You can investigate, test, modify it and see if it works for you. Ansible is only one way, under the hood it uses XML API calls to your PAN-OS devices, so other options to Ansible do include, XSOAR, and scripting and programming languages.
