Writing Tags to Address Objects via API

Hey all,

I have just started playing around with the API in Panorama. I am trying to write an address object with a tag.

I dumped an object and it looks like so:

<response status="success" code="19">

<result total-count="1" count="1">

     <entry name="badstuff" admin="admin" time="2015/02/09 17:00:50">

          <tag admin="admin" time="2015/02/09 17:00:50">

               <member admin="admin" time="2015/02/09 17:00:50">IOC000123423</member>

          </tag>

     <fqdn>foo.com</fqdn>

     </entry>

     </result>

</response>


When I try and write a new object I am using this

https://x.x.x.x/api/?type=config&action=set&key=<insert-key-here>&xpath=/config/devices/entry[@name='localhost.localdomain']/device-group/entry[@name='All Firewalls']/address&element=<entry name="blahdeblah"><fqdn>blahdablah.com.com</fqdn><tag><member>IOC23446567</member></tag></entry>

What I am getting back is this.


<response status="error" code="12">

     <msg>

          <line>

          <line>

               <![CDATA[ -> tag has unexpected text. ]]>

          </line>

          <line>

               <![CDATA[ -> tag is invalid ]]>

          </line>

          </line>

     </msg>

</response>


Any Thoughts as to what I am doing wrong?

Could you please confirm if that tag already exists on the firewall ?

I just tried the following command and it worked:

https://10.66.18.85/api?type=config&action=set&key=<key>&xpath=/config/devices/entry[@name="localhos...
