Zone name length

Zone name length

Hi all,

 

I was working with Expedition today when I noticed that, when creating a new zone in Expedition, the zone name length was clipped at 15 characters. When I imported configuration from a firewall containing a name longer than 15 characters, this was imported perfectly fine.

 

Couldn't find any other discussion regarding this, has anyone noticed it?

 

Kind regards,

Renzo

Re: Zone name length

have you created the zone on a config from palo alto or from another vendor? We only allow create zone names longer than 15 when you are adding it to a PanOS config and the PanOS version is higher than 7.

Hi Albert,

 

I created the zone manually in Expedition, it was not imported. I did create this on a Cisco imported configuration, but the long zone was created post-import.

What i say its only if you are creating a ZONE on top of  a Base Config (or any panos config) and the panos version is higher than 7 you be able to assign more than 15 chars... If you create a zone in your Cisco config will be restrited to 15 chars max... Do you know what i mean? thanks

I do get it indeed now.

Out of curiosity, is this planned to be changed in the future?
