In a lot of topics there are discussions and questions about PAN-OS enhancements and missing (not yet implemented) features. So far the PaloAlto Feature Request list isn't available to the public but in a lot of these existing topics feature request IDs (FR ID) are mentionned. Even knowing that PAN-OS is already a feature rich firewall operating system, there is always room for improvement, so I thought it might be helpful for others (and myself) to collect these existing public available FR IDs and summarize them in one topic.

So far I found a few and I'll try to update this topic regularly. If you also know about existing requests, please write them here.
From what I've seen from my SE, it appears to be a pretty clunky system; likely one of the reasons that Palo has chosen to keep it away form the public.
I think there are also other and probably even financial reasons why this list isn't public. This list completely public may cause wrong expectations as there is absolutely no guearantee that anything on that list will be implemented. And even when PaloAlto decides to implement a feature from that list - the first time this information becomes public is when a new PAN-OS is released. So even when you created a feature request you won't be notified when the decision is made for the implementation. And the financial reason might be something that it could prevent new deals because customers see that list, pick some IDs and then decides to wait for buying that product until this feature is included.
Yes, personally it would be cool to see that list but not really more. And from a conpany view I am sure this list will never be public.
With this post I simply tried to summarize the information that already made it to the public.
For 986 I will also add at least 5 companies ;)
The only reason I haven't done this since I know about this FR is that I was thinking about placing a new FR for a completely new Global Protect log category. What do you think?
