I will try this out thanks

I tried this and it didn't work for me

Been another year so thought I'd check if anyone know if these feature has been implemented directly into the Web GUI/Panorama yet?


I've recently taken on auditing tasks for our customers firewall estate and I'm used to other vendors having the simple ability to get this information, such as in a CSV. I'm mostly working in 6.0 and 7.0 at the moment, maybe they've added it to 7.1.  We have a number of processes in place so it means I need to be able to compare firewalls from different vendors on a common ground to keep our InfoSec teams happy.  Don't think we're unique in this requirement.


Can't believe Palo Alto have left it up to 3rd parties to have to work with the XML config export, not everyone is a scripter and it's great to see some people have stepped up in the past to assist with this limitation.

I don't believe that this is implemented at all. I currently just use the dump into an excel file to look at security rules and manually look at the other information as required.
