Best way to check if VPN tunnel is up via API?

What is the recommended way to test if a VPN phase two association is made and tunnel is up using the REST API?

Hello John,

I believe the best command would be this one:

<show><vpn><ike-sa><gateway></gateway></ike-sa></vpn></show>

https://<firewall-IP>/api/?type=op&cmd=<show><vpn><ike-sa><gateway></gateway></ike-sa></vpn></show>

hope this helps,

Ben
