In the last couple of weeks, I have been blogging about many of the new Cloud Services offerings:
New Cloud Service offerings! Part 1 of 3 - Logging Service
New Cloud Service offerings! Part 2 of 3 - GlobalProtect Cloud Service
New Cloud Service offerings! Part 3 of 3 - Panorama in AWS

But this week I want to talk about the Cloud Services Portal, what you can do with it as well as any known issues.

Since more and more services are being moved to the Cloud, keeping everything secure and safe is always paramount for any network security engineer thinking about existing in the Cloud.

 

And because Palo Alto Networks is starting to offer more and more Cloud Services, the only way that you will be able to activate any Cloud Services is going to be with the use of the Cloud Services Portal page.

 

The place to start with the Cloud Services Portal would be the Getting Started page located here:
Getting Started with the Cloud Services Portal

Note: As with any other Palo Alto Networks device or software, it needs to be activated first.

 

The Getting Started guide covers the following sections:
- Cloud Services App Access
- Cloud Services App Activation
- Cloud Services Portal Settings Page
- Cloud Services Portal Browser Support
- Cloud Services Portal Known Issues

 

Also on the Cloud Services Portal page, it gives links to the following Palo Alto Networks Apps to learn more information:
Logging Service

Magnifier
Traps

 

For even more information on Cloud Services, please see the Cloud Services Documentation page here:

https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/documentation/cloud-services


I hope this helps out a little.

If this has helped, please give me a Thumbs Up.

 

As always, we welcome all feedback, questions and comments in the comments section below.

 

Until next time, stay secure!

End of line.

I don't think "APPPORTAL-330" is an issue. A security service shouldn't be available with http ... not even for a redirect to https ... just my 2cents
