Panorama XML API Export Device State not generated, resulting error response"Device parameter needed' Instead

L0 Member

Hello everyone, we tried to create a script to export the device-state of all devices (Firewall, Panorama).

The API request is https://<device-ip>/api/?type=export&category=device-state.


When we tried the request on firewall it generate the .tgz file which is expected, but when we run it on the Panorama Device it resulted the XML response below:

 

<response status="error">
<msg>
<line>Device parameter needed.</line>
</msg>
</response>

What did we miss? What parameter is needed to use the export xml API for the device state. 
 
Happy to hear any feedback and thank you in advance! 🙂

Panorama isn't a firewall so it doesn't have a device state

 

The device state contains the device groups and templates a firewall received from panorama, panorama simply has the config export
