since we are changing policy targets from "device name" to "device tag" (device-Tag defined in Panorama > Summary), we still have the need to filter for special devices (device-tags) within the policy sets.
But what I have seen with 9.1.6, filtering policies list by device tag is not possible.
Also filtering for device serial number is not possible anymore within the policy set.
Is there any possiblity to filter for device tags within device-group > policies?
Is is strongly needed for daily business.
Hi @henry.engel ,
Thank you for sharing ! As far as feature requests go, please check the following blog from not that long ago. It explains the process of how to go about requesting new features:
Filtering for a device (at least with the serial number) is possible with:
Actually these policy filter is a filtering in the xml configuration where the policy is stored. Because of that there are some limitations and thats why so far it is only possible to filter by a device serial number.
But to address your requirement I see the following possibilities:
... the key for (almost) everything that is not yet possible in the webUI is the API ; )
Thank you for your hints regarding the filtering.
We know that scripting might be a solution, and your possibilites to solve it via script are also valid.
But not for all cases an analysis via script is beneficial.
For now I will accept, that there are DeviceTags, which do not allow full operational benefits in daily business when using them via WebGUI.
E.g. the power of the GlobalSearch in Panorama as well as PolicySet filtering is alomost gone when using DeviceTags with the need of filtering for specific targets, because filtering is not possible anymore. In a very lively policy set it makes it much more harder to analyse/find/adapt policies if this kind of filter is not present anymore.
