I have written about Quickplay Solutions in the past, but I want to take a second and explain more about the benefits of Quickplay Solutions and how it can help you implement Palo Alto Networks devices.
What is Quickplay Solutions?
Quickplay Solutions main page showing the different areas on that page.
Quickplay Solutions houses a collection of pre-built, ready-to-use content to deploy, configure, exercise and assess a security infrastructure. The goal is to provide 'easy button' solutions that save time and align to recommended practices. Included are a mix of community developed templates, playbooks, skillets, and scripts supporting a variety of use cases.
Often described as records played on various applications or record players, skillets are contained collections of information with a mix of variables, content, and playback instructions contained as metadata.
Skillets offer an open-source model for information sharing across a wide array of tasks and use cases. They can be used for NGFW and Panorama configuration, data capture and validations, device instantiation, or a combination of tasks as workflows.
Skillets are categorized in three fundamental ways:
Type: based on what they do; examples include 'panos', Panorama, Python, Terraform, validation
Collection: how they are tagged and grouped based on use cases or actions
Tier: based on maturity and trust in the community as certified, community, or personal
How can Quickplay Solutions help me?
Whether you are brand new or a seasoned security engineer, Quickplay Solutions has something for you.
Because the Quickplay Solutions skillets that are used are like records, you can play them and quickly implement new options and configurations that would take a lot of time to research. This is where the skillets come in to ensure that it is asking you for all of the information needed so it is configured correctly the first time. This is a time saver and can help save many headaches along the way, especially if you miss a step along the way.
