Commit icon does NOT unhighlight on 8.0.x for Panorama-VM

L2 Linker

Hello Community,


I have been experiencing different behavior with the commit icon (on the top right) of my Panorama-VM GUI since I upgraded from 7.1.11 to 8.0.3 (8.0.2, and 8.0.3-h4 has the same issue).


On PanOS-8.0.x the commit icon stays highlighted even though I do not have anything to commit for both the Panorama config and the context device configs (device groups & templates).


During my troubleshooting efforts I removed the context device from the Panorama-VM management completely and still the commit icon stays highlighted. I even spun up an entirely new Panorama-VM instance and the issue is present on 8.0.x code, but not on 7.1.11 or lower.


I usually rely on the commit icon to remind me of template/device group changes that I forgot to push to the context devices and for the actually panorama-vm commit changes that I’ve made – this false highlighting of the commit icon is causing me to think I have candidate-config changes that need to be committed.


Is anyone else experiencing the same type of behavior?


Thanks in advanced,


- Josh

On Panorama, commit link will stay active even if any device group or template devices are out of sync.

Can you confirm that all your firewalls managed from Panorama are in sync?

Using 7.1.x  PANOS code and later, the commit icon would grey out if there was nothing to be commited on Panorama and the context devices (managed devices) all where sync'd


My managed devices are all sync'd and I have nothing to commit on my Panorama-VM config.


I have yet to find any documentation on the new icon functionality in the 8.0.x release notes. I have a case opened with Palo Alto TAC - and is currently escalated.

This is a change to the default behavior, but was not documented at ALL. The Palo SE has put in a "feature request", I will keep the community updated of the latest.
