comments in cli

L4 Transporter



I have a text file with PANOS command line arguments (set) what character defines a comment line ?


is there one ?




Switch to scripting mode. In scripting mode, you can copy and paste commands from a text file directly into the CLI. Although you can do this without scripting-mode enabled (up to 20 lines). If you cut-and-paste a block of text into the CLI, examine the output of the lines you pasted. If you see lines that are truncated or generate errors, you may have to re-paste a smaller section of text, or switch to scripting-mode admin@PA-3060> set cli scripting-mode on



This seems a little silly - unable to allocate a character for comments. makes script files lot better by adding documentation to the script file.


Seems like very basic sort of stuff



is it possible that the comment would be similar to Juniper (both FreeBSD) and would use the same type of comments found in .xml (see below)


I agree with Alex, seems silly that such a character doesn't exist, but with Palo's constant desire to do everything via GUI I guess that makes some sense. 


Palo folks can you please comment and let us know if below syntax is correct?


<!-- this is a comment -->


No go...

Unknown command: <!--

i agree that a no comment character is a stupid omission on PA's part. common guys, put a comment character like #, ! or something into the config mode in CLI.
