XML API is truncating fields in configuration log extraction

L0 Member

Hi all,

I’m hoping to leverage of the wisdom of the collective here. I’m wanting to use the XML API to extract configuration logs from a Panorama instance. However I’m noticing the XML API extraction is truncating two fields I need.....before-change-preview and after-change-preview. Does anyone know if it is possible to request full fields in the output? I don’t see the same issue when going in via the GUI and extracting configuration logs to CSV. There is no truncation in the GUI or CSV in this method, yet that approach does not allow us to automate the process.


I’d appreciate if anyone knows how to get the full fields in the output.

I'm also experiencing the same thing.  @Campbell, did you figure out a way to get past the truncation of the before-change-preview and after-change-preview values?

Hi @cjcarew and @JDelaney,


Using an extra show-detail parameter should help here, for example:

https://{{host}}/api?key={{key}}&type=log&log-type=config&show-detail=yes&query=( receive_time in last-24-hrs )


Hope that helps!
