Panorama Rest API - Add ae subinterface

L1 Bithead

Hello everyone!

I am planning to create around 200 new subnets on my firewall managed by Panorama template. We plan to restructure our network.

I want to do this via the Rest API of Panorama. I was able to create a ae interface via the API, no problem. But I cannot create subinterfaces for this ae interface.

 

We are running Panorama 10.1.3-h1. 

 

The following is the JSON body I send to the AggregateEthernetInterfaces enpoint restapi/v10.1/Network/AggregateEthernetInterfaces?name=ae2.155&location=template&template=MyTemplate

 

{
    "entry": {
        "@name": "ae2.155",
        "ip": {
            "entry": [
                {
                    "@name": "10.10.155.1"
                }
            ]
        },
        "tag": "155"
    }
}

I am getting the following response:

{
    "code": 3,
    "message": "Invalid Object",
    "details": [
        {
            "@type": "CauseInfo",
            "causes": [
                {
                    "code": 12,
                    "module": "panui_mgmt",
                    "description": "Invalid Object:  ae2.155 'ae2.155' is not a valid reference."
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}
 
I thought, maybe I am using the wrong API endpoint, so I also tested with the EthernetInterfaces endpoint /restapi/v10.1/Network/EthernetInterfaces?name=ae2.155&location=template&template=MyTemplate with the following JSON body:
{
    "entry": {
        "@name": "ae2.155",
        "ip": {
            "entry": [
                {
                    "@name": "10.10.12.12"
                }
            ]
        },
        "tag": "155"
    }
}
But even with this endpoint I am getting an error:
{
    "code": 9,
    "message": "Parent Interface Not Found: Parent interface ae2 does not exist.",
    "details": [
        {
            "@type": "CauseInfo",
            "causes": [
                {
                    "code": 200,
                    "module": "panui_restapi",
                    "description": "Parent Interface Not Found: Parent interface ae2 does not exist."
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}
But the parent interface ae2 exists, I created it via API...
 
So my question is: How can I add a subinterface to an aggregate ethernet interface via API?
 
Thanks in advance,
Martin

Hello @MHuschenbett 

I guess you need to embrace your call with another layer holding the name of the ae interface. For us it is obvious that ae2.155 is below ae2, but how should the machine know this.

Hi Joerg,

 

Thank you for the answer.

The machine should know that ae2.155 is below ae2, because I can create a "normal" subinterface ethernet1/1.155 under ethernet1/1 without telling the API what the parent is (as you can see in the attached screenshots)

 

 

 

Also, in the mean time I was able to fullfill my task with the ansible panos collection.

 

But still, the question is how to do it via api...

 

Best Regards, 

Martin
