API Rest : Generate an API key linked to a specific user

L0 Member



I would attribute specific rights to an key on my panorama.

However when i use curl command or simply the the url like https://firewall/api/?type=keygen&user=username&password=password


I get each time the same key, no matter the user used, it's already the same key....


Thanks for your future reply

So you can assign a custom role to a user, and that will limit what they have access to..  But if you're always getting the same API key back, then there is either a problem with your script (maybe using a static variable or something instead of what you specify) or a huge problem with your firewall / PAN-OS.  If you're sure this isn't a script issue, then I would recommend reaching out to Palo Alto Networks tech support.
