Configure secrets/psk with Ansible 'panos_type_cmd'

L1 Bithead



When using paloaltonetworks.panos collection - module 'panos_type_cmd' is there any way to set secrets or psk without using the real password?


Configuring via plaintext password works fine and then when viewing the xml config the passwords are stored in hashed format by the device master key, e.g: "-AQ==xxxxxxxxxxxxx=xxxxxxxxxxxxx==". However due to the nature of public repos, is there anyway of using a hash?


The module 'panos_administrator' for instance has a parameter 'admin_phash' for instance. Something like this would be good. There are so many secrets/psk in the config so it's essential.
