Hello. I have a customer asking whether API connectivity for automated URL category queries from a different vendor appliance is possible (specifically Swimlane).
I haven't been able to find much in general on API URL queries, let alone from different vendors. I found a Live Community thread from a couple years ago: https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/general-topics/pan-db-api-for-url-re-categorization/td-p/292976
And also an old Wiki how to article, which suggests it's possible with bash scripts: https://networkwiki.blogspot.com/2018/03/palo-alto-networks-querying-multiple.html?m=1
But that's about it. Hoping someone can either point me in the right direction or give me a definitive 'No, this is not possible'. Thanks!

Hi @tcervellione, per the second link you quoted, it is possible to query PAN-OS API for URL category lookups today, yes.
