Copying firewall rules from one firewall to toher

Hello Experts

 

We have communication between DC and there are four three firewalls in between. So for bidirectional policy, I need to create same two rules on fw1, two rules on fw2 and two rules on fw3 (the only difference is offouce zone names and policy name).

 

All firewalls are managed through Panorama. How I can quickly copy and paste firewall rules across three firewalls. One thing in my mind is create rule on Panorama and then copy rule from CLI of panorama, change the zone names/policy name in notepad and then again paste in panorama. Is there any method, any suggestion would be highly appreciated

 

Appreciated your reply

Hi ghostrider,

 

you can clone the rule to another Device Group and than change the Zones

Hello

 

Thanks for reply. I tired but it is giving me error, I think some tags related that are not in other device group. Should I create similar tags and then try to copy? Also in other devcie group, there are different zone names, Will it allow me to clone the rules?
