Im familiar with Juniper equipment which all have the option to 'commit confirm' which automatically reverts the config change if a 2nd commit is not made within a certain period (default 10 mins I think).
Its a life-saver if you have to administer remote devices, bbvsince if your change broke connectivity for any reason, in 10 minutes time, your changes get revoked.
I now have to administer a couple of remote Palo Alto systems.
I don't know of any way to automate a rollback in absence of confirmation.
Does anyone know any way to do this?
Does anyone know if this is on the PANOS roadmap?
Note how low that FR number is. We have been asking for "commit confirmed" for a long time.
But please contact your Sales Engineer and add your company vote to FR 204. Keep hope alive.
Just to say for future readers, that a feature for this was released in 9.1 that checks connectivity back to Panorama post-commit: https://docs.paloaltonetworks.com/pan-os/9-1/pan-os-new-features/panorama-features/automatic-panoram...
