Identify Panorama Template Overrides on Firewalls

I have a scenario where we have 70 firewalls, in HA pairs, managed by Panorama.

Templates are set up, and pushed to the firewalls, but *some* of the firewalls have template overrides set for various things.

I am looking for a good way to identify, whithout visually eyeballing every web gui page on every firewall, which settings on individual firewalls are overriden from the template.


I am able to script out both api calls and cli commands, but neither one seems to be able to provide anything I can identify an override with, with no real difference, for instance, in the cli "set" commands between an template setting and an overridden setting. Any good ideas?

This is easy enough to identifiy in the XML configuration file. If you export the configuration from all of your firewalls you should be able to parse the XML to get the proper overrides for each firewall.
