Why am I not getting response when using pan.xapi vs panxapi.py?
from python interpretor:
api_sess = pan.xapi.PanXapi(hostname="10.209.32.33",api_username="myusername", api_password="mypassword",api_key='mykey')
api_sess..show(xpath = "/config/devices/entry/deviceconfig/system/hostname")
*returns no ouptput however using panxapi.py I expected results.
python panxapi.py -h 10.209.32.33 -l myusername -xr -s "/config/devices/entry/deviceconfig/system/hostname"
1) no need to specify api_username and api_password when api_key is specified
2) should handle exceptions
3) to see request XML response use for example:
@ksteves1 Thank you. It an old post, but I was stuck and this response helped me fix the script I was working on. "xml_result()" was the bit I was missing.
pan.xapi is amazing and does exactly what I need.
