Project description

PyPI PyPI Build Status Coverage Status

NAPALM PANOS

This is community version of NAPALM for the Palo Alto firewall operating system. For standard tutorials and overview of NAPALM, please review their documentation.

Configuration Support

This table identifies the currently available configuration methods supported:

Getter Supported
Config Replace
Commit Confirm
Config Merge
Compare Config
Atomic Changes
Rollback

Commit Confirm is not supported by the vendor at the time of this writing.

Configuration Lock is also supported, but the optional_args config_lock key set to True. You can see in this example.

from napalm import get_network_driver

panos_device = device"
panos_user = "admin"
panos_password = "pass123"
driver = get_network_driver("panos")
optional_args = {"config_lock": True}

with driver(panos_device, panos_user, panos_password, optional_args=optional_args) as device:
    device.load_replace_candidate(filename="2022-01-01-intended-config.xml")
    device.commit_config()

As shown in the example above, the use of NAPALM's context manager is supported and recommended to use.

The locks are acquired and released using XML API. Locks for config and commit lock are obtained and released separately from each other. Both locks are released automatically by the device when a commit is made on the device.

For troubleshooting:

  • The code crashed in a way that the lock could not be removed?
    • Remove the lock manually (CLI, API, Web UI). The lock can only be removed by the administrator who set it, or by a superuser.
  • The lock disappeared in the middle of program execution?
    • Did someone do a commit on the device? The locks are removed automatically when the administrator who set the locks performs a commit operation on the device.
