Global Protect's lack of connection profiles is making everyone at my company very sad

We're in a situation where we have mutliple PA firewalls deployed and many of them have their own GP SSL VPN set up (e.g. Manangement range, lab, severeal different customer "islands").  The lack of "connection profiles" within the GP Client is a real pain point for us.  We've talked to our client reps about this several times, including making a feature request, and have never gotten any sort of plan or road map.  AnyConnect, Pulse Secure, even VMware NSX's SSL VPN client all support multiple connection profiles.  Is this a problem for anyone else?  If so, please chime in.  I'm sure this is not an insignificant change to the GP client, but in my view it is sorely needed.

This is also a big pain point for me and anyone that i mention also scratches their head about why something so basic has not there out of the box, or not even added yet.

Have you looked into the "Multiple Gateway" configuration?



In the GP Portal configuration, you can provide a long list of potential gateways that your clients can connect to (Management, Lab, Customer1, Customer2, etc.).  You can mark them as "manual", and any time a user needs to connect to the "Lab" network, they right-click the GP agent, go to the Connect screen, and select the specific gateway that they're interested in.  

We'd have to configure multiple potential gatways under each portal, which is not scalable.  There is a 1:1 relationship between portal and gateway for us.  We just need a client where we can configure multiple portals and be able to choose between them. Every other VPN client I use does this. Just sayin'.

definitely have to agree, we have portals with different configurations and would be nice to have just one portal, which would give them all the configuration they need and control their experience as necessary.
