Changing zone name in 100 security policies?

L4 Transporter

Hello Experts

 

I want to change the zone name. There are 100 security policies associated with that zone. How I can do it quickly, like is there any replace pattern command available (like in Juniper) to replace th zone name any where in configuration?

 

Regards,

no python from me   😛

 

text search and replace would work as long as you dont have any other part of the text file using same text string

I believe if you just change the zone name under network -> zone, that will automatic update security rules which has that zone applied.

Hi,

 

Are you doing this directly on a firewall or changing a Panorama Template ?

Hello Kiwi

 

If I do on the firewall directly then next time I push the config from Panorama then it will be deleted. I have to do on Panorama. Is there any way I can manually edit the replace old zone name to new zone name in the config and reload it on Panorama or any other better way to do that?

Thanks. I will lookinto this. Do you have script in python? Also Can I do like export file from Panorama and then search and replace the old name of zone with new name and import again into Panorama?

Thank you ! Just one last thing, From Panorama what file I need to export, modify and then import

Years after you asked but I thought it was worth mentioning. Presently there is a rename command that looks like it may do the trick:

 

rename template TEMPLATE-NAME config vsys vsys1 zone OLD-NAME to NEW-NAME

 

I'm going to do this on about 400 zones tonight, wish me luck.
