panos_query_rules – PANOS module that allows search for security rules in PANW NGFW devices.

New in version 2.5.

Synopsis

    • Security policies allow you to enforce rules and take action, and can be as general or specific as needed. The policy rules are compared against the incoming traffic in sequence, and because the first rule that matches the traffic is applied, the more specific rules must precede the more general ones.

Requirements

The below requirements are needed on the host that executes this module.
