Pan Commit Changes By User

An intriguing feature of PAN OS 8.0.9 is the ability to commit your own changes as opposed to all candidate config. This would be great because it's often that two or more engineers will have changes that overlap pending the approval chain. But if I click on Commit Changes Made By (my user ID) - and then try to Preview Changes, I get an error like:

Preview-Chg
Status Completed
Result Failed
Details
  • This operation is blocked because of following changes by other administrators:
  • WorkAway-17 modified by babadoo in vsys vsys1 rulebase security rules
  • To proceed with the operation, please select all of these administrators

 

Because the preview doesn't work for the individual user, I haven't pressed ahead to actually commit my changes. Is it the case that Commit works but not the Preview Changes? Or is the whole thing just not ready for prime time? Or could I be misunderstanding the purpose and value of the Commit Changes Made By: widget? 

 

Thank you.

I have not had this issue, but maybe because my changes have been independent from the other person's changes. It sounds like your changes depend on something else being added by another person.

 

BTW, are you using Panorama? If you are, I really like the improvements in Panorama 8.1

Like what you see?
