Notes

Note

  • Panorama is supported.

  • Check mode is supported.

  • PAN-OS connectivity should be specified using provider or the classic PAN-OS connectivity params (ip_address, username, password, api_key, and port). If both are present, then the classic params are ignored.

  • If the PAN-OS to be configured is Panorama, either template or template_stack must be specified.
