Find disabled administrator accounts

L4 Transporter

Across a large environment, what would be the best way to audit Palo administrator accounts?  That is accounts found at Device > Administrators.


For various reasons we all end up with lots of AD accounts, service accounts and so on there, what I'd like to do is find a way to periodically check those accounts against AD to see if they are still valid.


So far the only way that I have found is to export the csv and run a powershell script against the names which pipes out to a simple "true or false".  Problem with that is that I have to run it across a ton of Palo's one by one.


There has to be a better way.  Even if it's a script that will run against all my palos to get the names first.

So with your existing script I would just tie in calls to the firewall's API to grab any administrator on the system, instead of doing a CSV export.  The API URL would be /api/?type=config&action=get&xpath=/config/mgmt-config/users

Is there a way to show the Administrators on a template via command line?
