How to configure SNMP V3 on checkpoint firewall

I want to configure SNMP V3 on checkpoint firewall.
I have configured firewall in 3 different VSX instances.
Firewall GUI is not available in VSX mode to configure, kindly check attached screenshot for you reference.

You begin with:
set snmp agent-version v3-Only
set snmp mode vs
set snmp agent on

Then to configure a user:
add snmp usm user <user> security-level authPriv auth-pass-phrase <PW-Auth> privacy-pass-phrase <PW- Privacy> privacy-protocol AES authentication-protocol SHA1

For VSX there are some more options, you can access the VS itself by it's own IP or access all through the VS0 IP with the following command:
set snmp vs-direct-access on/off
To make sure you are allowed to access each VS the following command is used:
set snmp usm user <user> vsid all/<VSID's>

Hope this helps.

Nope, not possible, only through the WebUI or CLISH and on VSX only through CLISH.

As you suggested, we did the configuration on checkpoint Gateway. Now checking the device discovery SNMP status with NMS team.
