Export firewall device state file through panorama using API

L3 Networker

Hi Team, 

Customer want to export firewall device state.

They already know how to do this using API directly on the firewall : 

curl -k -o {{Filename}} "https:// {{Firewall_IP}}/api/?type=export&category=device-state&key={{Firewall_API_Key}}"

They want to do it through panorama using API. It's looks like we can do that using the following command : 

https:// {{Panorama_IP}}/api/?type=export&category=device-state&target={{Firewall_Serial_Number}}&key={{Panorama_API_Key}}

They got this answer : 

<response status="success">
<result> Device state device_state_cfg.tgz created successfully</result>

The issue is they don't know how to retrieve the "device_state_cfg.tgz" file through the API.

I checked it with PM,

as of Nov 2018 ,there is no plan to fix this at the moment. If customer needs an enhancement, need to raise clear request to PM.
