Can you explain a little more what you are actually trying to do. To the best of my knowledge there is no character within the cli that dictates a comment. Any script that you are trying to setup would usually have a comment character that simply means it should ignore that line.
It this what you wanted:
# set cli config-output-format set
set deviceconfig system update-server updates.paloaltonetworks.com
set deviceconfig system update-schedule threats recurring daily at 01:15
set deviceconfig system update-schedule threats recurring daily action download-and-install
set deviceconfig system update-schedule global-protect-datafile recurring daily action download-and-install
set deviceconfig system update-schedule global-protect-datafile recurring daily at 01:30
set deviceconfig system update-schedule anti-virus recurring hourly action download-and-install
Sorry. needs better explanation.
So I am using a text file - similar to what i did with cisco / arista. which has lines of config in it. But I was able to use
# or !! to signify that those lines where comments - so I could document desiscions
I would use the text files by simply coping and paste into a cli.
so I might want to have something like this
# set up aggregate port
set template vdc config network interface aggregate-ethernet ae1 layer3 ipv6 neighbor-discovery router-advertisement enable no
set template vdc config network interface aggregate-ethernet ae1 comment "10G PO to core switches"
and I would like to be able to select the whole file and just paste.
with PANOS, the # comes up as an error, which makes it harder for me to quickly scan for errors.
