Palo Alto Networks Cloud NodeJS SDK

NodeJS idiomatic SDK for the Palo Alto Networks Application Framework.

The Palo Alto Networks Cloud NodeJS SDK (or pancloud for short) was created to assist developers with programmatically interacting with the Palo Alto Networks Cortex Framework.

The primary goal is to provide full, low-level API coverage for the following Application Framework services:

  • Logging Service
  • Directory Sync Service
  • Event Service

The secondary goal is to provide coverage, in the form of helpers, for common tasks/operations. (Log/event pagination, OAuth 2.0 and token refreshing ...)

Quick Starting

  1. Install pancloud in your project as a dependency $ npm install pancloud
  2. Use the autoCredentials() function to instantiate a Credentials object based on your environmental variables
    • Option 1: Set the variable PAN_ACCESS_TOKEN to retrieve a Credentials instance (valid to interface with a datalake as long as the access token is not expired / no auto-refresh available)
    • Option 2: Set the variables PAN_CLIENT_ID, PAN_CLIENT_SECRET and PAN_REFRESH_TOKEN to instantiate a memory-based credentials provider and retrieve a Credentials object bound to the datalake for which the provided refresh token was issued (auto-refresh available)
    • Option 3: Set the variable PAN_DEVELOPER_TOKEN to retieve a Credentials object that will leverage your API Explorer tenant to issue access tokens on your behalf
  3. Instantiate a LoggingService object using the Credentials object you obtained in the step 2
  4. Perform a query using the query() method of your LoggingService object.

Quick Starting Examples

create a file named index.js in your project forder with the following content

const pancloud = require('pancloud');
pancloud.autoCredentials()
    .then(credentials => pancloud.LoggingService.factory(credentials))
    .then(loggingService => loggingService.query({
        query: "SELECT * FROM panw.dpi WHERE subtype='dhcp' LIMIT 1",
        startTime: 0, // 1970
        endTime: 2000000000, // 2033
        maxWaitTime: 30000 // wait up to 30 seconds for the query to complete
    }))
    .then(jobResult => console.log(JSON.stringify(jobResult, undefined, ' ')))
