External Palo Alto Dynamic List

L1 Bithead

Hi Team 



Have a PA220   licensed for Wild fire, Threat prevention, and PANDB URL filtering .


Though I had configured the External Dynamic List based on the best practice, I could not get the default  PaloAlto Dynamic IP lists feed : Palo Alto Networks - High-risk IP addresses and the Known malicious IP addresses  showing up 



Could someone please guide me on how to configure the prefined Palo Alto  list  ?







Accepted Solutions

The default list is not appearing because the PA is not having the Antivirus  installed . To get this please run the following command using the CLI.


"request url-filtering download status vendor paloaltonetworks "


Go to Devices\Dynamic Updates and do " check now "


The PA will download the Antivirus  -install the same 


Viola --- the default Dynamic IP list appears under Objects/External Dynamic List ...  🙂

I found this article where it specifies that for the Dynamic Lists to appear you must install the antivirus.

Palo Alto Networks - High risk IP addresses and

Palo Alto Networks - Known malicious IP addresses

are selectable as source address or destination address in your security rules without any other prior configuration.

You can view them as Predefined in Objects > External Dynamic Lists if you wish


Hope that helps


Kind regards

Thanks for the reply.


Those two lists are not showing up under Dynamic list. I  too thought that after syncing with the license and other updates, I should be able to see those default list under External Dynamic list but it is not.


Is it possible to create them manually?








I'm going to guess that you are not running 8.0.* at all? 

Thanks Bpry for the reply .


 It is a  brand new PA220  and running on  8.0.6.
