XML API response for predefined EDL only returns 1 value instead of the entire list

L1 Bithead

Hi there,

Has any one been able to successfully use the XML API to query the predefined EDL lists and have the ENTIRE list returned back in the response?


When I attempt to query say the panw-torexit-ip-list, the XML response only returns using this command:





I only get one member returned:


<response status="success">
<result total-count="1257" count="1">



Here is the XML syntax that i'm using:




I've attempted to query this EDL from the CLI on the firewall and the entire EDL is returned... I'm just not able to get the entire list returned via API.


Thank you,

Hi @mslavens ,


I'm not seeing the same thing on my lab so I'm not sure why it's happening like this for you. 

That being said, I notice in your reply that the total-count=1257 and the count=1 ... which is why it only returns 1 line for you.


I'm not sure why the count=1 in your case but you can manually change this value using the <num-records> tags. 


Try this:




If the number of IP addresses changes you'll have to change the num-records value as well so it's not ideal.


Hope this helps.
