Wildfire event through the REST API

Not applicable


I have been looking at the RESTful XML API in order to retrieve logs, and have noticed that the API returns traffic and threat logs, but it does not return wildfire logs.

To retrieve threat logs I provide type=logs and log-type=threat as parameters.

Wildfire logs show up with type=THREAT and subType=wildfire when retrieved through syslog. Shouldn't they then be return similarly through the REST API?



you are missing the apikey.  I use -d in the below because you don't need a multipart/form-data request, but -F will work also.


$ curl -i -d "apikey=$KEY" -d device_id=00xxx -d report_id=247406568 https://wildfire.paloaltonetworks.com/publicapi/report

It worked as expected!
