Firewall / Threat Prevention policy API

We're looking to have better controls around policies and policy items from a programmatical standpoint. I envision internal users and groups being able to enter tickets for setting permanent or temporary exclusions for antivirus and possibly dynamic firewall rules that can be reviewed and approved outside of ePO, and then enacted via Python or other API mechanism. Are there any plans for making this possible, or improving the granularity of what the API can control? Or maybe there's a way of doing this already and I'm just not savvy enough?

I know we can apply policies, tags and such via the API but I'm more looking to work directly with catalog items, the internals of policies etc using Python, perhaps some kind of GitHub integration for policy XML files. Many thanks!

Re: Firewall / Threat Prevention policy API

There is currently no functionality to edit policies via API and no plans that I am aware of to change that.  You can submit a feature enhancement request (idea) per kb60021.

Re: Firewall / Threat Prevention policy API

Can existing firewall policies be applied to a user or computer via API?
