Migrate User-ID based rules from CheckPoint

L2 Linker

Is there any news about when Expedition will support the migration of User-ID based rules from CheckPoint?


A lot of the CheckPoint FireWalls we are now migrating use identity awareness in their rulebase. Often there are hundreds of rules which make it close to impossible to migrate manually without mistakes. I would guess we are not the first ones having such challenges, so I’m wondering if anyone has already written a script to semi-automate this until it's officially supported in Expedition.


In the CheckPoint files exported from a >R80 deployment, we can see that the “security-mc” file includes the definition of the security rule referencing a UUID for each object, including the User-ID object, and then the objects file includes the details of the User-ID object corresponding to the UUID, including the LDAP name we need in the Palo Alto Networks security policy. So if the information is already there, then it seems to be doable.
