How many of the community members have submitted feature request(s) and implemented ? How long did it take for the FR to get implemented ?
Thanks for sharing,
Features are released on Major (7.0 to 8.0) or Minor releases (7.0 to 7.1) would contain your FR. (From what I've seen these are released every 6 months or so. I don't think there's a specific release cycle.)
Bugs / Break/fix patches 7.1.0 to 7.1.1 contain no feature enhancements meaning when they're released they're not going to contain your FR. (These follow a 5-6 week release cycle depending upon the severity of the needed fix.)
How quickly your FR potentially gets included in a release, I would think, is going to depend upon the value Palo sees in putting engineering effort into integrating it into the platform as well as user interest.
I'm not certain, but when my company was looking into Palo, back in PAN-OS 5 we voiced desire to see things like "user-agent" and other HTTP fields in the user logs. It was about 8-10 months before we saw it releaed in PAN-OS 6.0 I think. So I'm not certain if we were the first to request this FR, but that was our timeline.
Well, we filed the FR for "Reconnaissance Protection SourceAddress Exclusion" about almost 5 years ago. (back in PANOS 5.0 released), it is finally deliveryed in PANOS 8.0.
I've submitted many FRs. Some were eventualy included, some still aren't. I guess it depends on usual factors: ease of implementation, popularity and usefulness.
Following PA through years I thnk they are adding the right features and I'm very happy the way PA is going.
I would like the FR process to be more public. Today you have to go through a PA partner to register a request, and there is no public list of suggested features that you can add your vote to (not that I know of).
@jvalentine That was FR#2085, our name was added to that FR in March 2013, at that time, The PM said not planned to fix. That is why I am surprise it was incldued in 8.0.
