Using Ansible to update local user passwords (not admin)

L1 Bithead

panos_administrator allows me to update administrative accounts but I need to update passwords on local user accounts.  Is there any way to do this?

Hi @dpflick, the PAN-OS Collection does not have a module for this, but I created an example playbook (use in production at your own risk, usual disclaimer, etc) that uses various other modules to achieve the desired result. It should work for creating new users, as well as updating passwords for existing users. Hope this helps!
