Learn about PAN-OS OpenConfig benefits and capabilities
Palo Alto Networks OpenConfig plugin
allows you to programmatically access the firewall based on OpenConfig
data models and protocols to automate configuration and telemetry
retrieval. To Learn more about OpenConfig, visit https://www.openconfig.net.
The OpenConfig interface uses gRPC Network Management Interface
(gNMI) protocol for configuration management, telemetry based on
the OpenConfig data models, and gRPC Network Operations Interface
(gNOI) for operational services defined by OpenConfig.
Using the plugin, you can manage configuration, generate streaming
telemetry, and carry out operational services on the firewall. The
OpenConfig plugin is supported on the hardware and VM-Series firewalls.

If you want to change the IP address for gNMI requests, you should
first configure the management interface for the firewall. How to Configure the Management
Interface IP shows how you can set the management IP of a
