Panorama IP Variable set to none/null possible?

I'm pretty sure this isn't supported and I haven't been able to get this to work.  I am attempting to use a single network interface template for multiple sites.  Some use 30 sub-interfaces and some may only use 3.  I want to push every sub-interface to all locations but only set IP variables on the ones that I need.  Does anyone know how to set a Layer 3 sub-interface and assign no value to the variable for ipv4?  Currently if it is set to "none" the commit will fail with message: Device xxxxxxxxxx variable table has undefined values, please use get value from device or define it first.  Unfortunately I want it to be defined as "none".


PS - I have also tried overriding at the stack level and removing the variable.  The GUI initially removes it but then it just comes back after a refresh.  This could be a bug.

As you stated, I do not think it is possible.


Why not populate all interfaces with a bogus address in the template variable.

May be ugly, but gets the job done.

You are correct... it works... it's ugly... and we want to avoid it.  Hopefully PAN will have a fix for this soon.  If I can do this directly on a firewall I should be able to template it out.
