Getting PAN-OS version from XML-API

Not applicable

I was wondering how you can get the current version of the PAN-OS thru the XML-API? I can see the <config version="4.0.0"> when I use the show command but I know that we are really on 4.0.8. How do I get this version number, rather than the 4.0.0?

You can use the "show system info" command to retrieve the PAN-OS version.


The <sw-version> element returned will contain the value you are looking for.

Thanks, but I'm looking for a way when using the 4.0 Rest API. Do you know that way?

My apologies.  Unfortunately the 4.0 Rest API can only retrieve or modify the configuration of the device and the PAN-OS version information is not contained in the configuration.
