Export/import tool using set commands

L0 Member

"Hello to the Palo Alto Networks community,

After conducting research on the tasks of exporting and importing configuration file in PA-VM version 10, I've learned that using file transfer protocols like TFTP and SCP allows for the export and import of the current state configuration file in XML format as a default. This capability is also supported by Panorama.

However, for my specific use case, I am interested in finding out if there is an automated tool or a module, possibly utilizing Python or Ansible, that facilitates the export and import of the configuration file in the format of 'set commands'.

Additionally, I would like to gather opinions on whether exporting and importing configuration files in 'set commands' format is considered a best practice in the industry.

Thank you for the advice in advance.
