Sorry for the delay in the reply. I typically like to restart all devices we have, some more often than others. Microsoft based systems get restarted weekly by script. Switches about every 6 months to a year. I'd like to restart the firewall once a month or so...
The firewall restart desire started about a year or two ago when under previous versions, it would get a little squirrely after about 2 months of up-time.
I haven't noticed that problem with the more recent versions however but restarting periodically is usually a good thing.
Okay. We'll I would personally recommend that this not be something you do in the middle of the night for a variety of reasons, primarily the fact that if the auto-commit process fails or a dependent process fails to start properly your firewall will be unaccessible until someone in the IT staff can take a look at it.
That being said, the REST url that you would use the do something like this is below. You could then use either Powershell or a Python Requests script to actually do this on a scheduled basis.
