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?

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.





No it is not doing that

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?
