Administrator CLI access via Cloud Identity Engine

L0 Member

Hi Experts


“Administrators can use SAML to authenticate to the firewall or Panorama web interface but not to the CLI”, as mentioned in the PAN-OS administrator documentation.

Can we use the Cloud Identity Engine instead to authenticate administrators to the CLI? So that we connect via SAML to the CIE, and we use CIE in an authentication profile to login the NGFW GUI, CLI and API ?


Thanks for your reply.
