Notes for Panorama Advanced:

  • Access Request supports full Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) capabilities, including Tags, AppID, Custom AppID, UserID, Dynamic Address Groups (DAGs), Security Profile Group (ContentID) and Log Forwarding profiles.

    • Custom AppID’s are not supported for SecureApp

    • Unique names are required for Custom AppID’s. If there are multiple Custom Apps with the same name (not case sensitive), same domain, and different services or values, they will not appear in the application list.

    • For Custom AppIDs with no services, if the app is being run on a Panorama device that does not have that app, Designer will view the Custom AppID as having ANY services.
    • TOS cannot create new DAGs, but can use existing ones.

    • You can define the default for Security Profile Group (ContentID) and Log Forwarding profiles in stconf. Once these profiles are set, Designer for Access Request will create new rules accordingly. For details, see Configuring Log Forwarding and Security Profile Groups.

    • You can customize Designer to add access in pre or post sections by configuring the default in stconf. For details, see Configuring Pre and Post Locations.

  • Access Request supports FQDN objects, which are resolved as IP addresses.

  • Rules on Panorama devices with ANY in the application column are treated as ANY by TOS, although Panorama treats them as 'Any predefined application'.
  • Access Request supports rule type for Designer and Verifier.

  • Access requests supports working with shared objects, this needs to be enabled in stconf. For details see Configuring Palo Alto Panorama for Shared Objects

  • Modify Group and Server Decommission supports shared groups/global objects.

  • Overriding objects are not supported for Server Decommission and Clone Server Policy. For Server Decommission, Designer suggests the implementation of manual changes.

  • New objects in a Rule Modification workflow can only be created on the policy where the rule is located. It is not possible to create a global object in a hierarchical environment and add the object to a rule on a sibling policy.

  • For a Palo Alto Panorama device with several hierarchies in a Rule Modification workflow, if an object name exists in a lower Device Group (DG), Designer does not allow the creation of an object with the same name in a higher DG, even though Panorama does allow using the same object names in different hierarchies.

  • Rule modification supports provision and commit in auto-step.

  • Rules with "Any" selected are not supported.
