Tutorial: Clearing Commits

Clearing commits is often an overlooked feature but can be very useful at times.  Imagine you want to add an additional change but already scheduled a commit.  You can easily cancel the commit, add your change and re-commit, preventing you from doing unncessary commits.  Or imagine that a commit hangs for whatever reason (not that it ever happens ...) and you would like to abort/flush it.


For whatever reason you might need to do it, it came up as a discussion in our discussion board a while ago.  A user was wondering how clearing commit queues worked and if it was even possible to clear commits prior to PAN-OS 7.1 seeing that commit queues was added as a new feature in PAN-OS 7.1.


In this video I explain how clearing commits work and how you can even clear a running commit.  The video discusses pre and post PAN-OS 7.1 examples.




Thanks for reading/watching. 

As always, we welcome feedback and comments below.
