The PAN-OS® and Panorama™ REST API allow you to manage
firewalls and Panorama through a third-party service, application,
You can use the REST API to Create, Read, Update, Delete (CRUD)
Objects and Policies on the firewalls; you can access the REST API
directly on the firewall or use Panorama to perform these operation
on policies and objects from a central location and push them to
the managed firewalls.
The inputs in the PAN-OS REST API generally match the web interface,
and you can use the PAN-OS Web Interface Help to
familiarize yourself with the field properties, descriptions, and
supported values for each product. Reading relevant portions of
the PAN-OS Administrator’s Guide will
help you get a better understanding of firewall capabilities that
you can access using the API. To use the API, you should also be
knowledgeable about web service APIs and HTTP.
