30 Day Trial License Expire

Hi guys,

We have been used 30 Days trial ULR Filtering License so far.

After 30 days, it means expired, We couldn't use it naturally.

and I tought it may can use old db version-url filtering- even though It won't get any update information as like normal License.


But it didn't happen like below traffic log



 It couldn't block any pages belong to in URL Categroy, and see the log -license-expired-.


I wonder about 30 Days trial license can't use any original database after its expiration.

Hi Kang_Han,


You can see the overall URL filtering action when the URL Filtering license expires from the WebGUI go to Objects > Security Profiles > URL Filtering, then click on a profile name to see the above window. You will have 2 options, to either allow or to block URL filtering traffic when the URL License expires. 
The action selected for Action On License Expiration will be applied for all web traffic handled by the rule that uses the security profile. If the action selected is block, then no web traffic would be allowed by this rule. Likewise, if the action is allow then the traffic would be allowed.

Dear Kang,


In PAN-OS 8.0 there are now 2 categories inside the URL Filtering profile where there was only 1 before.

If you are not familiar with PAN-OS 8.0 URL filtering, for each URL category, you have "Site Access" and "User Credential Submissions". This is in the WebGUI under Objects > Security Profiles > URL Filtering > URL Filtering profile.
