Policy audit comment in cli

L4 Transporter

Do you know how can we configure and view Panorama security policy audit comments in the cli or another way for bulk applying comments to policies. 

I will modify policies in bulk using the cli set commands, but also want to add audit comment to all the policies with the change description, but I can't find the cli option for it.

There's not a great way to do this, primarily because the audit-comment itself isn't actually in the entry itself but instead "associated" with the UUID of the rule. You can use the set audit-comment xpath <xpath> comment <comment> command to create an audit-comment in the CLI or type=op&cmd=<set><audit-comment></audit-comment></set> in the API to configure this outside of the GUI.

@BPry This is frustrating and kind of defeats some of purpose of the audit comments.  I will probably submit a feature request about it
