forcefully logout all GP users from gateways

Hi Anyone,

 

I'm trying to logout all GP VPN users forcefully logout from the gateway either doesn't logout users or no errors throwing on command as well

 

>request global-protect-gateway client-logout gateway gp-gateway reason force-logout user * computer *

 

Login & logout time is same before and after execute this commands. Please let me know, have any one tried this way or share the correct commands.

Re: forcefully logout all GP users from gateways

Please use the below command to logout all users from the portal but this command could also be working from PAN 9.0.

> request global-protect-portal client-logout portal <value> reason <force-logout> filter-user all-users

 

Below is the command to disconnect all users at once from a Gateway but this feature is only available from the PAN-OS 9.0.2

>request global-protect-gateway client-logout-all gateway <value>

Re: forcefully logout all GP users from gateways

I'm on 8.1, so I used the API to loop through users and log them off.  I came up with this set of commands that I can run from any linux box with curl and xmllint

FW=your_firewall_name
GW=your_gateway_name
# read admin password into environment variable so it is hidden from history file
read -s pass
# get a key to use the api
install -m 0600 /dev/null pa_${FW}.key
RESP=$(curl -kq https://${FW}/api --data-urlencode "type=keygen" --data-urlencode "user=admin" --data-urlencode "password=${pass}")
xmllint --xpath "//key/text()" <(echo $RESP) > pa_${FW}.key
# get connected users, then loop over them to log them off
USERS=$(curl -kq  https://${FW}/api -d "type=op" -d "cmd=<show><global-protect-gateway><current-user><gateway>${GW}</gateway></current-user></global-protect-gateway></show>" -d "key=$(cat pa_${FW}.key)")
for i in $(seq $(xmllint --xpath "count(//username)" <(echo $USERS) )); do 
  U=$(xmllint --xpath "//entry[$i]/username/text()" <(echo $USERS))
  D=$(xmllint --xpath "//entry[$i]/domain/text()" <(echo $USERS))
  C=$(xmllint --xpath "//entry[$i]/computer/text()" <(echo $USERS))
  echo logout: ${C}:${D}:${U}
  curl -kq https://${FW}/api -d "type=op" -d "cmd=<request><global-protect-gateway><client-logout><computer>${C}</computer><domain>${D}</domain><user>${U}</user><gateway>${GW}-N</gateway></client-logout></global-protect-gateway></request>" -d "key=$(cat pa_${FW}.key)"
done

Re: forcefully logout all GP users from gateways

Hi @Karup ,

 

As far as I can see only portal users can be logged out all at once.

 

> request global-protect-portal client-logout portal <value> reason force-logout filter-user all-users

 

This seems like a missing feature on the gateway to disconnect all users at once.  You can do it for one user on the CLI or from the UI Network>GlobalProtect>Gateways> <value> >Remote Users

 

You might want to raise a feature request with your local SE.

 

Cheers,

-Kiwi.
