Watchguard to Palo Alto Migration Options

L1 Bithead



I was wondering how people have got around migrating from Watchguard to Palo Alto, the migration tool (Expedition) is not an option, or is it? Is there a fairly automated way to do this?


@Jonathan_C Please send to me to fwmigrate at paloaltonetworks dot com Thanks!

Hello Albert,


is there any secure way to send you the config and see if you can help me to migrate it to PAN?



We are sorry, but we do not support Watchguard yet, even it is in the roadmap.

In your case, you may have to contact Professional Services to give you support on it.

Hi @Kaliman, what I ended up doing with this was to get the objects and policies out of the Watchguard in a spreadsheet, then using pandevice wrote some code to push it programmatically to the PANW.


Once you have that, then fix the security profile groups. I was lucky enough the migration I worked on was on some small firewalls so the policy wasn't crazy complex


hope this helps

Thank you Jonathan
