In a lot of topics there are discussions and questions about PAN-OS enhancements and missing (not yet implemented) features. So far the PaloAlto Feature Request list isn't available to the public but in a lot of these existing topics feature request IDs (FR ID) are mentionned. Even knowing that PAN-OS is already a feature rich firewall operating system, there is always room for improvement, so I thought it might be helpful for others (and myself) to collect these existing public available FR IDs and summarize them in one topic.

So far I found a few and I'll try to update this topic regularly. If you also know about existing requests, please write them here.
The ability to use a BGP ASN in Addresses and/or Address Groups.
Instead of adding all addresses from the ASN manually to an address group, It would be awesome to add the BGP ASN and all addresses from that ASN are added to a dynamic list. This would obviously require a query to a BGP lookup site (assuming Palo Alto would use their own) but would make rule management far easier. Especially for cloud services for example.
Feature Request# 17279
Do you have an FR number for this request? If not, reach out to your SE and have them put it together, or check if one already exists, and post it here once you know what it is. That way others can add their vote to it if it's something they find would be a useful addition to the platform (and it would be, at least IMHO).
Hey @Remo ,
I just found that there was FR2729 - pull groups from Radius.
Not sure if it is still active.
1. Add ability to put a time limit on a Security Policy. Use Case: Allowing a specific user the ability to use say SMS but only for X time then the rule disables automatically for security.
2. Add ability to click a record in the traffic logs and then add that to the security policies. For example, X traffic was blocked by Y rule. I right click on the record in the logs shown on the Monitor tab, select "add to security rules" and Palo Alto creates the inverse of the block.
I work at huge palo alto infrastrucutres, most of them using Panorama. I would like to see the Routing Table Information ("More Runtime Stats") and the VPN Tunnel Interface Status (Up/Down for Phase1 and Phase2) at the Panorama GUI.
At the moment I need to do a context switch to every single location to gather these information, only if there is an monitoring system at the customer site, then I can use SNMP.
Where can I lead this subject as a feature request?
Please oh please add colour schemes and tone down the login screens.
We've recently upgraded Panorama from 9.1 to 10.1 and it actually hurts to log in, especially after being woken up at 2AM on-call to investigate an issue.
My colleagues have declared the current colour scheme as baby poo yellow and thoroughly dislike it. Because I'm the administrator, I get the full force of their feelings 😭
Allow Threat exceptions to change the severity of the threat as well as the action so that we can choose to reset-both / drop / or block IP etc, AND change the severity level so that it doesn't email if our log fowarding level is set to only send high's or critical's. I'm getting tired of netgear and gpon threat critical warnings when I don't have a netgear or gpon router.
You'll need to actually submit feature requests through your SE so they can add your vote to an existing FR or create a new FR for you. Once you have that number and add it to your comment, others who also want the feature will now what FR # to site if they would like to add their vote to the request.
As for the log forwarding level, you could always change the filter so that these threats are excluded when they are detected so the system doesn't process them. That would at least provide you some reprieve.
