Can I configuration send traffic log to syslog on global

L1 Bithead

I searched on internet and I found only setting send traffic log to syslog by per security rule. on situation that has multiple security rules (100-200 rules). Can I set Syslog on global? or It can be set only per security rule?

Thank you for the post @jirasith


I am afraid that only option is to set it up per security rule. For all new rules, if you name log forwarding profile as: "default" it is automatically added added to the rule, but this will not help you with existing rules. Please check documentation, step 2:


Kind Regards

Hi @jirasith ,


There are some tools out there that allow you to perform bulk edits. Here are some options you might want to look into:


Expedition, primarily used for migrating configurations, can do bulk changes.  Please verify if this can help you:



You can look into API and scripting.  An example here:



Alternatively you can look at PAN-CONFIGURATOR, a PHP library aimed at making PANOS config changes easy:



Hope this helps,

Hi @kiwi,

I have a question about Expedition Tool. I have to import the production configuration to Expedition Tool and then do the bulk Changes > Log Forwarding. and then export configuration on Expedition Tool and import to production firewall right?

Correct. Export and load your current configuration into Expedition, make the bulk changes, and then export the updated configuration from expedition. You can then import the updated configuration file on the firewall and load and commit it to apply the bulk changes you made in Expedition.
