PyFG is a Python (2.7 tested, may work on other versions) package.
API for FortiOS or how to turn FortiOS into JunOS
This API allows you to interact with a device runnine FortiOS in a sane way. With this API you can:
- Connect to the device, retrieve the running config (the entire config or some blocks, whatever you want) and build a model
- Build the same model from a file
- Do changes in the candidate configuration locally
- Create a candidate configuration from a file
- Do a diff between the running config and the local candidate config
- Generate the necessary commands to go from the running configuration to the candidate configuration
You can find the documentation on Read the Docs.
To install the library execute:
pip install pyfg
In the examples directory you will find different file with examples on how to use the API:
- example1 - How to retrieve the configuration of a VDOM
- example2 - How to get BGP information and navigate through it
- example3 - How to load BGP configuration from a file (running.conf is emulating this step), load the candidate configuration from a file and then check the differences and show to get to the candidate configuration from the running one.
- example4 - Similar as example3 but this time the changes are done programmatically instead of using a text file.
- example5 - This example will do some changes, will try to commit them, will detect that something went wrong and it will finally rollback the changes.
