  1. Thanks for this, my current issue is that there isn’t an API for the Panorama bundle. Using this script I’d have to connect to every single firewall individually. Panorama has the Schedule Config export natively via GUI and you can do it via the cli with “scp export config-bundle to”, but this is no API for that.
