Licensing API

Use the licensing API to manage license tasks. for firewalls that do not have internet access.
Use the licensing API to register auth codes, retrieve licenses attached to an auth code, renew licenses, or deactivate all licenses on a VM-Series firewall. In addition, the licensing API enables you to license firewalls that do not have direct internet access and cannot reach the Palo Alto Networks license server. You can manage licenses manually or automate licensing with a custom script or an orchestration service.
You can also use the Panorama Software Firewall License plugin for licensing tasks, including offline licensing. The plugin requires Panorama 10.0.0 or later with VM-Series plugin 2.0.4 or later, and your managed VM-Series firewalls must be running PAN-OS 9.1.0 or later and VM-Series plugin 2.0.4 or later; the VM-Series firewall for Azure requires VM-Series plugin 2.0.8.
For model-based licenses, he API allows you to view the details of an auth code so that you can track the number of unused licenses attached to an auth-code or auth-code bundle that enables you to license more than one instance of the firewall. An auth-code bundle includes the VM-Series model, subscriptions and support in a single, easy to order format; you can use this bundle multiple times to license VM-Series firewalls as you deploy them.
To use the API, each support account is assigned a unique key. Each API call is a POST request, and the request must include the API key to authenticate the request to the licensing server. When authenticated, the licensing server sends the response in json format (content-type application/json).
