Refresh EDL from webserver

Hello community,

 

We are using EDL for manually blacklist and whitelist some domains. We configured all our firewalls to refresh the EDLs every 5 minutes, but EDLs don't refresh until a couple hours. The solution that we found is use the "import now" button, doing that the EDLs refreshes. Is there any log we can search to see why the EDLs doesn't refresh? Is this a known issue? Thanks!

 

 

Using PANOS 8.1.7

@Rodrigobe,

To expand a bit. When you run the command 'show jobs all' you should see quite a few jobs entitled EDLFetch. Locate the Job ID and run the command 'show jobs id <id>' and you should see the results of every EDL being utilized in policy.

Thanks @MP18  and @BPry  I'll check on this and let you know the results in a couple minutes.

UPDATE

 

We can see the EDLFetch job running every 5 minutes in all our firewalls. We also se the EDLRefresh job when we update any EDL. But for some reason some firewalls don't refresh the EDL even if we see the EDLRefresh command running until we run import now. 

All those firewalls that don't refresh the EDLs are located geographically outside the US (our webserver hosting master files for EDLs are in the US). Maybe that has something to do with this, but it is curious that when we click on improt now it works.

We will keep working on this and post any updates. Thanks for your support.
