Solution
There are two interactions between Pulse Policy Secure (PPS) and Palo Alto Networks (PAN) firewalls where different API's are used to provide a seamless experience.
  1. PPS utilize the keygen command to receive API key to proper authenticate to the PAN firewall.
  2. PPS utilize the User-ID APIs (login, logout, register and unregister)
    • login is used to register the User-IP mapping to the PAN firewall
    • logout is used to remove the User-IP mapping to the PAN firewall
    • register is used to register the IP-Tag (role) mapping to the PAN firewall
    • unregister is used to remove the IP-Tag (role) mapping to the PAN firewall
For more details about each User-ID API, please refer to the Palo Alto Networks API guide under "Apply User-ID Mapping and Populate Dynamic Address Groups (API)". (page 82)
