Our Panorama is configured to talk to multiple devices. These devices have multiple "vsys" configured. I am trying to use the Pan REST API to get a list of devices and vsys names that are in the Panorama, so a customer can choose which device and vsys the config commands can be sent to.
What API calls do I need to do to achieve this?
another alternative may be to use 'get' with the xpath below.
$ panxapi -t panorama -gxr /config/devices/entry/device-group/entry/devices
<devices><entry name="001606000471"/></devices><devices><entry name="0004C101452"><vsys><entry name="vsys2"/></vsys></entry></devices><devices><entry name="0004C101452"><vsys><entry name="vsys3"/></vsys></entry></devices><devices/>
Similarly, how can you retrieve a list of vsys names on a single firewall using the API? I know you can pull the whole /config/devices/entry/vsys tree, but that takes forever and returns a lot of extra data. I'm currently looking at pulling /config/devices/entry/vsys/entry[@name='vsysX']/display-name starting with X=1 and incrementing until I get an error, but that seems really dumb. Ideally I'd use /config/devices/entry/vsys/*/display-name but it looks like the "xpath" expressions in the API don't support wildcards.
