Palo Alto Panorama Integration Setup

This guide will walk you through steps to set up Palo Alto Panorama integration with the nautobot_chatops App.


Before configuring the integration, please ensure the following:

Command Setup

Create a top-level command named panorama in your enabled chat platform. For detailed instructions related to your specific chat platform, refer to the platform specific set up.


You must define the following values in your file:

Configuration Setting Mandatory? Default Available on Admin Config
enable_panorama Yes False Yes
panorama_host Yes No
panorama_password Yes No
panorama_user Yes No

Below is an example snippet from development/ that demonstrates how to enable and configure Palo Alto Panorama integration:

PLUGINS = ["nautobot_chatops"]

    "nautobot_chatops": {
        "enable_panorama": True,
        "panorama_host": os.environ.get("PANORAMA_HOST"),
        "panorama_password": os.environ.get("PANORAMA_PASSWORD"),
        "panorama_user": os.environ.get("PANORAMA_USER"),

Upgrading from nautobot-plugin-chatops-panorama App


When upgrading from nautobot-plugin-chatops-panorama App, it's necessary to avoid conflicts.

  • Uninstall the old App:
    pip uninstall nautobot-plugin-chatops-panorama
  • Upgrade the App with required extras:
    pip install --upgrade nautobot-chatops[panorama]
  • Fix by removing nautobot_plugin_chatops_panorama from PLUGINS and merging App configuration into nautobot_chatops:
    PLUGINS = [
        # "nautobot_plugin_chatops_panorama"  # REMOVE THIS LINE
        # "nautobot_plugin_chatops_panorama": {  REMOVE THIS APP CONFIGURATION
        #     MOVE FOLLOWING LINES TO `nautobot_chatops` SECTION
        #     "panorama_host": os.environ.get("PANORAMA_HOST"),
        #     "panorama_user": os.environ.get("PANORAMA_USER"),
        #     "panorama_password": os.environ.get("PANORAMA_PASSWORD"),
        # }
        "nautobot_chatops": {
            # Enable Palo Alto Panorama integration
            "enable_panorama": True,
            # Following lines are moved from `nautobot_plugin_chatops_panorama`
            "panorama_host": os.environ.get("PANORAMA_HOST"),
            "panorama_password": os.environ.get("PANORAMA_PASSWORD"),
            "panorama_user": os.environ.get("PANORAMA_USER"),

Environment variables for this integration are the same for both, old and new configuration.
