Is there a way to do a policy verify and get a full list of verification errors?

By default the verify process only returns ~20'sh verify errors.  Is there a way to get it to return everything?

There is definitely a way depending on the version you are using. Which is it?

R80.10 has a Management API which offers policy verification.

Example:

mgmt_cli verify-policy policy-package "standard" --version 1.1 --format json‍

Yes, there is a way to verify policy with mgmt_cli, but does that give ALL errors as Ivan asked. Haven't tested it with a policy with lots of verification errors.

I'm not an SE and not in Finland. The Lead part was correct. 🙂 I though you had tested it and that's why I asked. As I said I don't have a management in my lab with a lot of verification errors to test right now.

Corrected. I know one can put the SmartCenter into debug mode (sk44338) and see all verification errors under $FWDIR/log but I hoped Ivan would respond more swift to know which version he uses and figure out the next relevant steps.

I am not sure what API version, but the api call you reference returns the same results as running it via SmartConsole.

This is my understanding as well that API should always return the same output as SmartConsole.

performing the verify-policy from Postman with web-session API call the only response I receive is a task-id.  I need to then look at the task-id to see the results of the verification.

Currently we tried to balance verification errors performance with detail. So often times we "fail fast" rather than give a full list of errors that can take a while. So this thread is a good feedback.

Please note that with R80 and above, some of the things that used to fail at the "verify policy" process are now instant and live as the users make the change, blocking them from publishing the change.

I totally get failing fast.  It makes sense.  It would be quite useful to have a option/flag/something that could be passed to have the process not fail fast and provide everything.

Which of course doesn't help if there was a bug in the policy validation logic previously Smiley Happy

I would suggest the procedure(s) from sk44338 How to debug Policy Verification.

adding verbose logs will not increase the amount of verification checks....

Yes, that is a pity!
