The only way in CLI to do a "show run" type of output in XML format is to execute the following commands. This holds true for both Panorama and Pan-OS (not managed by Panorama):
User at Palo-Alto-FW> set cli config-output-format xml
User at Palo-Alto-FW> configure
Entering configuration mode
User at Palo-Alto-FW# show
<response status="success" code="19">
<result total-count="1" count="1">
****Truncated to hide my config****

How are you backing the Panorama configuration? is that just another
