Any chance of an Automated Rollback on Palo Alto firewalls?

L2 Linker



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?

Just throwing this out there as an option, but if you have a small node on-site you could use to run a script you can automate a configuration roll-back through the API fairly easily. Ideally this actually gets implemented directly in PAN-OS, but it's a viable option for those that don't use Panorama who want this functionality.
