I have been working with Palo Alto Networks devices since 2012 and one of the more confusing topics that I have helped with has almost always been: How do I activate, register or license a Palo Alto Networks device?

 

Although you may be able to search the Live Community and find an article or two that explains how to do this, there has not been a single place to visit and see how to accomplish this for all Palo Alto Networks devices and software.

 

Good news, everyone! A page located off the official Technical Documentation site has all this information in one handy dandy place.

 

So, no matter if you want to register a PAN-OS 7.1 firewall or activate WildFire or or Panorama or anything in-between, you can find all this information on that page.

 

Here is a list of the software on this page:

  • Aperture
  • AutoFocus
  • Cloud Services
    - Logging Services
    - GlobalProtect cloud service
    - Magnifier
    - Cloud Services App Activation
  • GlobalProtect
  • Panorama
  • PAN-OS
  • Traps
  • VM-Series Firewalls
  • WildFire

The Activation, Registration and Licensing page is here:
https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/documentation/licensing

 

 

Thanks for taking the time to read. If this info was helpful, please leave a thumbs up (like), so I know that it helped someone.

 

As always, we welcome all comments, questions, and suggestions in the comments section below.

 

Stay secure!

Great article... however... I'm rather new here.  I purchased a PA-200 brand new on eBay and I want to register the device so I can get software updates.  I wasn't able to sign up for a support account because I was missing the customer number.  Am I going about this wrong?

@whowe82,

You'll likely want to reach out to contact_sales@paloaltonetworks.com or call 866.320.4788 or 408.753.4000 to actually get a support contract so that you can update the device.
