Rest-API gives invalid xml response

L1 Bithead

When receiving an error from the Panorama REST API, the platform is responding with what appears to be an invalid XML document. Here is the data in question:

<response><code>16</code><message>Invalid Credential</message><details><entry @type="CauseInfo"><causes><entry><code>2</code><module>panui_auth</module><description>Invalid Credential</description></entry></causes></entry></details></response>

All XML parsers/validators refuse this XML document as being not well formed. Removing the @ character appears to fix the problem.


Full URL Get:


Parameters (Key | Value) -- Already embedded in the get above: location | shared output-format | xml


Non-Standard Headers (Key | Value): X-PAN-KEY | <Invalid API Key>


Response: <response><code>16</code><message>Invalid Credential</message><details><entry @type="CauseInfo"><causes><entry><code>2</code><module>panui_auth</module><description>Invalid Credential</description></entry></causes></entry></details></response>

Hi @morahman

I can confirm I can see the same behaviour. I have raised a ticket with engineering to investigate further. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
