Custom-url-category using XML API

L0 Member

I am almost there as to trying to add a custom url category its just that I can't add it correctly. The below works perfectly and can go ahead and return a custom url category so I know at least my API Key is good and I can authenticate fine with Panorama and I get a Success code of '19'.

 

Get_URL = "https://<panorama-url>/api/?type=config&action=get&xpath=/config/shared/profiles/custom-url-category/entry[@name='github']"
response = requests.get(f'{Get_URL}&key={API_Token}', verify = f'{Root_CA}')
 
 
My issue is with the below is that when I try add a new object, then I get a Error Code 12 (Invalid object) which indicates that my "Xpath or element values provided are not complete."
 
Set_URL = 'https://<panorama-url>/api/?type=config&action=set&xpath=/config/shared/profiles/custom-url-category/entry[@name="TEST1"]/list&<entry name="TEST1"><list><member>*.TEST1.com</member><member>TEST1.com</member></list><type>URL List</type><description>TEST1</description></entry>'
response = requests.post(f'{Set_URL}&key={API_Token}'verify = f'{Root_CA}')
 
 
I have also tried messing with the URL to create just the object without any information and that fails as well. When I use the WebUI, it DOES allow me to just create a custom URL object with using only the name so this should work but I get same Error code 12 (I tried put,post, and get). I also tried adding "/list" to the end of the URL and got same error code.
 
URL = "https://<panorama-url>/api/?type=config&action=set&xpath=/config/shared/profiles/custom-url-category/entry[@name='TEST1']"
response = requests.post(f'{URL}&key={API_Token}'verify = f'{Root_CA}')
 
 Does anyone see what I am doing wrong for the URL that I can change to make this work?

Figured it out by a ton of trial and error and the below will work just fine to create a new url category:

 

Add_custom_url_category = "https://<panorama-url>/api/?type=config&action=set&xpath=/config/shared/profiles/custom-url-category/entry[@name='TEST1']&element=<list><member>*.github.com</member><member>github.com</member></list><type>URL List</type>"
