API to run user activity report

L2 Linker

I need to generate a UAR for multiple users and wish to automate it.


I can script the creation of report, and I can use the API to schedule the report:


https://(firewallname)/api/?type=op&cmd=<schedule><uar-report><title>test3</title><user-group>tdc\palo alto networks test reporting</user-group></uar-report>&key=(key)


This comes back "Success" and provides a job ID. I check the tasks and confirm the job has status of "FIN" so it has completed successfully.


But I then cannot retrieve the report in PDF format. I found the documentation which states to do this: https://(firewallname)/api/?type=report&action=get&job-id=(jobid)&key=(key)


But it states "No such report". 


Would love some help in finding out how I can leverate the API to run my multiple UAR's and either email them, or have them available somewhere on-box where I can retrieve them using tftp/scp etc.

Were you able to pull this report in PDF format using API?
