how does two or more snmp communities?

L3 Networker

Two snmp community values need to be set, but only one community value is included.

Can I put only one community in the SNMP Community String?

If anyone knows, please share the contents.

It appears that only 1 community string is set, which does make sense.  The FW sends SNMP trap via snmpv2 or snmpv3 for alerts, and the FW is managed using a single snmp community name.

What is the use case you would be describing?

In the case of Fortigate, you can set several snmp community values, but is Paloalto different?

Hi @qmso475 ,


This is a missing functionality.

There's already a feature request for this. 

Please reach out to your local SE and ask him to add your vote to the FR# 2288.
