unable to upload certificate to Panorama via post API

L1 Bithead

Hello, 

 

I am restructuring my python script and with the new structure it is failing to upload certificate to Panorama. 

 

I have a working API call: 

requests.post("https://" + ip + "/api/?&type=import&category=certificate&certificate-name="+certName +"&format=pem&key=" + panapikey, files=file, verify=False)
 
My new structure looks like this: 
 
class Panorama:
    def __makeapi_request(self, url, data="", files=""😞
        try:
            response = requests.post(url, data, files, verify=False, timeout=10)
            response.raise_for_status()
        except requests.exceptions.ConnectTimeout as err:
            print("connection error")
            exit(1)
        except requests.HTTPError as err:
            self.error = err
#            return self.error
        except BaseException:
            dom = ET.fromstring(response.content)
            self.error = dom.find('.//msg').text
#            return self.error
        else:
            self.response_xml = response.content
            self.response_httpcode = response.status_code
#            return self.response_xml

    def import_cert(self, certName😞
        files = {"file": open(certName, "rb")}
        url = f"https://{self.ip}/api/?"
        params = {"type":"import","category":"certificate","certificate-name":certName,"format":"pem", "key": self.panapikey}
        self.__makeapi_request(url, files=files, data=params)

When I run import_cer(certName) I am always getting the error bellow: 
<response status = 'error' code = '400'><result><msg>No file uploaded</msg></result></response>
 
I am copy/pasting the values from the working API call, so there should be no typos, also I am testing the import with the same certificate and the same certificate variable. 
Can someone advise what I am doing wrong ?

Hi @Krasen.kolev, I was able to get the code working with changing

response = requests.post(urldatafilesverify=Falsetimeout=10)

to

response = requests.post(url, data=data, files=files, verify=False, timeout=10)

although there may be other/better ways to modify the code.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi @JimmyHolland

 

Thanks for your reply! 

My issue is that when I use directly the post request, everything is working fine. However, I am modifying my code to start using the private function "__makeapi_request". 

so when I call function import_cert(certName), which in turn is calling __makeapi_request(url, files=files, data=params) I get the error:
"
<response status = 'error' code = '400'><result><msg>No file uploaded</msg></result></response>".

 

To me it seems that when I use the private function(__makeapi_request), Panorama does not take into account the provided file.

I tried multiple different variations to pass the data, but all of them resulted with the error above.

Yes, the modification I mentioned is within the __makeapi_request function's code

 

Here is my test of the code: https://github.com/jamesholland-uk/playground/blob/main/python/upload-cert-to-panorama.py

Sorry, I didn't realized it. 

Just tested it and it is working fine! Thanks for the help!
