Hi @hamza-zidane,

that's not a problem per-se, but it means that the inbound filters in the node inboundfeedhc are dropping some indicators.

Could you share your config? Or the config of inboundfeedhc node?




Hello lmori,


Please find the requested file config in the attachement,

I want to share with you also this finding,the test ("Source URL is accessible" when testing in the GUI) is OKi,




But the test from FW CLI is not successful

Thanks in advance for your support!

Hi @hamza-zidane,

the DROP_UPDATE is generated because the node *inboundfeedlc* receives an UPDATE for an indicator with confidence level 100, that is confidence level high. *inboundfeedlc* instead is based on a prototype (stdlib.feedLCGreen) that selects only indicators with confidence < 50. *inboundfeedhc* instead is baed on feedHCGreen that selects only indicators with confidence level high and accepts the indicators ACCEPT_UPDATE


You should check ms.log file for additional details about the PAN-OS error in pulling the EDL.



Hello Imori,


Thanks for your quick feedback,

I have checked the logs on FW, and made a quick check on internet for what it might be the root cause for this error,

but unfortuntally i could't find something helpful.

I have put the below error message and hope you could take a look and help

Have you configured a proxy for EDL on PAN-OS? Could it be that the proxy is not reachable?
