XML API not working

I am facing an issue with the Palo Alto API where I am unable to exclude 'policy-and-objects' and 'shared-object' in partial changes. When I try to use the following XML structure in my API request:




I do not get the expected response. Instead, I receive an error - "<![CDATA[ show -> config -> list is unexpected ]]>" . Can anyone help me understand what might be causing this issue and how I can resolve it? Also, please suggest if any alternative API command is available to fetch the data.

Any insights or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

You can find the xpath values by going to https://<device-ip-address>/api.
