Static IP Address to User Mapping

Is there any way to statically assign a Username (ID) to an IP address on the PA?  I have a very small install with no AD.  There are two computers that I would like to run User Activity Reports on, but they can only be run against a User and not against an IP Address.  Captive portal seems like too much of a pain to require the users to log in regularly.

Any ideas?

I don't think so there is a way to other than the PAN Agent using AD

As per my understanding you want to generate a report for the two users with distinct ip-addresses.

That should be possible by entering ip-address instead of username in the "User" field in User Activity Report.

User Activity Report Settings

Name:-  Enter a name to identify the report.

User:-    Enter the user name or IP address (IPv4 or IPv6) of the user who will be the subject of the report.   <<===

Time frame:-  Select the time frame for the report from the drop-down list.

Let me know if that helps.

You can also create address objects for your pc and name them accordingly.  You could see object names in the logs and ACC then.
