GlobalProtect client script options

I want to create a script or some other option if it is available that will present an icon on the users desk so that they can quickly disable/ enable the GP client without the reason prompt. I had a quick look but I don't see any CLI oprtions available tha I can use in a script. 

 

Is this possible?

Re: GlobalProtect client script options

can you not just select "allow" in the Portal/App setting. perhaps you have it set to "Allow with comment".

 

maybe i have missed your point so please elaborate....

Hi Mick,

 

Thanks for for the response. This is an option and one that was presented to management who requested this, but I guess they want to make it even simpler by having an icon that users can double click.

Hey @Jamesy

 

If you set your connect method to "on-demand" -  instead of having to disable the app there would literally be a disconnect button ;) Sounds pretty simple to me!

Hey Luke,

 

Thanks for this. I am aware of this option and I agree it does seem pretty easy. This has been requested from the top, so I have to make sure I confirm there is no option for a command line that would facilitate a desktop shortcut to quickly diconnect when required.

 

I haven't seemn anything n teh docs and none while testing in teh CLI on a Windows PC. Am I correct in saying at this point that one does not exist?

 

Cheers,

Hi @Jamesy

 

For the windows client there is no CLI to script global protect actions. The only nice way is to use the options provided by global protect.

 

(A not so nice way is to write a little program (that needs hardcoded credentials for an account with administrator permissions). With this little program you could disable the PanGPS service which does kind of the same as diconnect/disable GP with the integrated options)

Thanks everyone for the input. It’s pretty clear at this point that there is no way to do it. I will mark this one as answered.
