Exporting URL Filter objects/groups

Not applicable

Is there a way (CLI or WebUI) to export the URL Filtering objects and their details?  We are looking to export the objects and their block/allow categories so we can put them in front of management.

Here is one of the ways through which configuration for  uril-filtering objects could be exported via CLI.

Step1 :

Set the CLI output format to display "set" commands in Configuration mode,also settting Pager off  disables the paging function which is enabled by default.

> set cli config-output-format set

> set cli pager off

Step 2:

> configure

admin@PA-500> configure

Entering configuration mode

Step 3 :

Log the Cli Session

Step 4 :

# edit profiles url-filtering <name>

[edit profiles url-filtering <name>]                                                                                                                                         

admin@PA-500# show

<This would display all the set commands associated with the URL filtering profile in question.>

Step 4 :

Copy and paste this output on the New Firewall in configuration mode and commit the changes.

Doesnt running-config contain these items?

In webgui you go to Device > Setup > Operations and there select Export named configuration snapshot (select running-config.xml which is the current active configuration).

I was not able to get the Custom URL list entries from exporting the running configuration.  I exported the device state.  I unziped the file and opened it in notepad++.  I was able to search for the custom URL list and found the list of website we had entered there. I was able to manipulate the list to my liking and migrated it to a MineMeld server. I plan to use EDL list instead of doing the URL entries in the firewall directly.
