I created the PA-200 stencil, not the best picture, but has connection points.  I'll upload it here if someone can tell me how?

I´ve created the following generic Palo Alto LAN icon based on the Cisco ASA one. You can use this fancy PNG directly in Visio and it fits to the known "green" Cisco LAN icon series. :-))

Are there stencils similar to the icons used in the Palo Alto documentation? Specifically the isometric shapes?

is there a better shape of the PA-5000 rear?  it is appears like some created that from actual PA-5000 series firewall?

Yeah, the 5050 rear isn´t exactly a real stencil...

Yes.  The ZIP file currently linked in this document is to the April 2014 Visio stencils. 

Enjoy! :smileyhappy:

Hey man, NRice has updated the stencil kit, and these look great--I've used them in several diagrams.  Please remove prior comments, as they are misleading.

Based on an idea found in the Community (this post), I created a network topology icon (stencil) inspired by the Cisco topology icons in vector and not only bitmap. Available for OmniGraffle and in EPS format (I'm not familiar with Visio, but the EPS can be used for this):

Any chance these could be upgraded to a newer Visio format? My company doesn't allow us to open really old version files.

Will the Visio Stencils be updated to a newer Visio format to support the newer application, and will these be updated soon to include the newer PAN products, ex. M-500?

 I can't find visio stencil for PA-7000GQ-NPC. Someone could help me?

Any news about updating the Visio Stencils?, still missing the newer PAN products ( ex. PA-220/850)

Are these official Palo Alto Networks stencils, are these made by a 3rd party?  


Also is there is reason as to why these are being hosted on a web store, that requires registration to download free stencils?  Esp with this being a 3rd party, not sure I want to register with yet another store front just to download something.  Website has no "guest" checkout option.

Yes, these are official Palo Alto Networks stencils.


As far as why they are hosted on a different site that requires registration, I cannot answer that.  But I have confirmed these are official.

Requiring registration with a 3rd party site to download free templates is a terrible idea.  Please host these on the official site or put them up on a free stencil site that does not require registration.

I agree with the 2 posts above .  It is terrible to have to register for free stencils, not only that but they ask you to put in a credit card , eventhough the checkout shopping cart  shows  $0

Whatta crock!- PaloAlto Shame on you! Put the freaking stencils on your Website fer chrissakes! These are tools all engineers using your product find very usefull...we are paying through the nose for subscriptions and licensing already , the least you could do is host this stuff yourselves...

To all, 

We have attached the latest stencil to the article, so you do not have to visit the 3rd party any more.

Hi everyone,

My company Visimation produces the Visio content for Palo Alto Networks so I'd like to offer some explanations with regard to certain posted concerns.  We sincerely thank you for your feedback.  I'd appreciate an opportunity to explain and respond to several comments here. 


We develop the stencils and we also offer free hosting of the files on our site We do not charge Palo Alto Networks, nor users for hosting or downloading. Palo Alto Networks owns this content and may post the files on their own website if they choose. Many of our clients prefer to have us host the files as well for several reasons including the special features our site provides and ease of posting. We do ask users to register an account to enable the shopping cart features as a convenience; they will not work without a registration. The commerce platform we use does not provide a "guest" checkout so we cannot offer that. Please note that NO credit card information is actually requested in the checkout process for FREE files. kardasopoulos1 may have been deterred during checkout but that's a misunderstanding. I can assure everyone that we do not ask for credit card information unless a product is being purchased.


I completely understand that some users are reluctant to register... I'm the same way. However, I guarantee that we do not use account information for any purposes other than managing downloaded content. We don't share, sell or promote to registered emails. You can register minimally with first name, last name, and email. You don't need to enter company, address, phone, etc. unless you are comfortable doing so.


We've been Visio specialists for 20 years and there are thousands of free Visio shapes on ShapeSource in addition to Palo Alto Networks shapes. I hope my explanations succeed in helping you to be comfortable in using the site. We are also avaliable to answer questions about the use of these shapes as well as some basic Visio user questions so please feel free to post them here. I will do my best to support the Palo Alto Networks community by responding to network diagramming questions. Again, I thank you kindly for your comments.
