Action and Session End Reason conflict when SSL decryption enabled

L3 Networker



SSL decryption was turned on for one of the inside servers. Although it looks good, but some of the logs are rather strange.

There are sessions like these:session1.png

Basically  Action - Allow, Rule is hitting correct one (the one permitting the traffic), but Type is Deny and Session End Reason is policy-deny. That looks false to me and it seems that traffic is permitted indeed. Can check more with captures, etc., but has anyone seen such an effect?


 PAN-OS: 8.0.2


In my case, that kind of log appears at least when the browser shows the typical message about untrusted certificate. Is this your case?

is there any eta when it will be fixed, as this conflicts with my dynamic no-ssl-decrypt groups, the policy works and the traffic is marked and supposed to be bypassed for decryption but it hits the allow policy but "end reason - policy deny"
