Azure bootstrap - indirect internet access



We are in the process of bootstrapping our ELA-licensed VM-series firewalls for use in Azure. The firewalls will not have internet access once spun up, so I am not able to simply load the auth code in the license folder. We will be leveraging Panorama to speak with the licensing server in order to load the licensed features on the firewall. In this scenario, the documentation states that we must go through the "register new device" process within the support portal, which requires that we have the serial number of the device. We are attempting to fully automate this process, so the serial number will not be readily available, as we dont want to interrupt the process to manually fetch a license from the support portal. 


I'm probably overlooking something - is there an easier way to accomplish this without manual intervention?

Re: Azure bootstrap - indirect internet access

We ended up giving the firewalls internet access during bootstrapping to resolve this issue.
