find command keyword
For example, suppose you want to configure certificate authentication and you want the Palo Alto Networks device to get the username from a field in the certificate, but you don’t know the command. In this case you might use
find command keyword
to search for commands that contain username in the command syntax.
username@hostname >
Entering configuration mode [edit] username@hostname #
find command keyword username

From the resulting lists of commands, you can identify that the command you need is:
username@hostname #
set shared certificate-profile
