Delete URL from URL Category using api

L1 Bithead

I'm wanting to be able to delete specific URLs from Objects -> Custom Objects -> URL Category using the api.  I have refered to an existing post here that offers a solution however, I am getting an error when I run the command.  My command running on PAN OS 6.1.9 is: -d "/config/devices/entry/vsys/entry[@name='vsys1']/profiles/custom-url-category/entry[@name='Blocklist - Mine']/member[text()='']"


The response I get is:


delete: success [code="20"]: "Object doesn't exist"


The specific URL is still listed in the URL list.


Any suggestions?  Also, I would like to know if there is a way to empty all entries from the Blocklist - Mine URL category without deleting the category itself.

I think your XPath for the object may be a bit off.



/config/devices/entry/vsys/entry[@name='vsys1']/profiles/custom-url-category/entry[@name='Blocklist - Mine']/member[text()='']



/config/devices/entry/vsys/entry[@name='vsys1']/profiles/custom-url-category/entry[@name='Blocklist - Mine']/list/member[text()='']
