Application Dependency Warnings after 8.1.12 upgrade

L2 Linker

Hi all,


I just upgraded all the firewalls from 8.1.7 to 8.1.12 to patch some vulnerabilities.  After the upgrade, I am suddenly getting a bunch of application dependency warnings which I commit the configuration from Panorama.  The configuration hasn't changed.  


The warnings are legit - but they weren't displayed before.  Does anyone know why they are showing up now in the new version?

Hi @stevenkadish ,


Did you do content upgrade ? Some of the apps might have had some updates/changes.


Sometimes the firewall can have a change of behavior after an upgrade ... but seeing that you remained in the same branch I doubt this happened in this case.

@stevenkadish  It seems content/app update is happened and in new version, there are some changes related to certain apps. And there is need of adding dependent apps in order to allow existing app in policy.


Post upgrade, it shouldn't happen. Once cross verify if dynamic updates were updated.





I didn't do a content update on the date of the upgrade.  I pushed out version 8231 the day before the upgrade, and that version didn't have any application dependency changes.
