Best Practice Analysis Not Running

L0 Member

I see a couple discussions already posted about this, but they are from a few years ago and the solutions are not working for me. 


I've got Panorama imported as a device and I can see all device information from it (security policies, managed firewalls, objects, templates, etc). It appears expedition can see everything it needs to see. 


I attempt to run 'Start Analysis' from the Best Practices -> Dashboard and it appears to think about it, the process bar moves and after 10 seconds it says Done..however no checks appear to have been run. Last run says 'Never Analyzed'.  Not sure what to do to get the practices to run.

Hello @ZachOlsonADT 


On your dashboard are there any issues popping up with expedition? Also if it is urgent you can perform it through our portal.

I had the same issue using Expedition 1.2.58 (latest build)...when looking at the two cli command that Expedition seems to run for BPA (bpa-cli and bpa-legacy-cli) they both returned error for 


File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/bpa/utils/", line 9, in <module>
from import json_normalize

ImportError: cannot import name 'json_normalize' from '' (/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/pandas/io/json/


File "/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/bpa/legacy/", line 10, in <module>
from import json_normalize

ImportError: cannot import name 'json_normalize' from '' (/usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages/pandas/io/json/



I updated both files




And changes the lines


from import json_normalize


from pandas import json_normalize


Now BPA is working inside Expedition for me 🙂
