How to convince PAN to know UID mapping for all vsys

L1 Bithead


We use multi-vsys and XMP API for UID. It works fine for vsys1. We use this sintax for login:






               <entry name="user1" ip="" timeout="20">





After I paste this sintax in https://PAN_IP/API/<user-id> I see in CLI:

> show user ip-user-mapping ip

IP address: (vsys1)
User:        user1
From:        XMLAPI
Idle Timeout: 1196s
Max. TTL:    1196s
Groups that the user belongs to (used in policy)

Question is, how to do, that PAN will recognized this user for all vsys?

I already enable User Identification in zone in vsys 2, and configure in Device->User Identification->Group Mapping Settings LDAP server. I can also see groups in "Group Include List" tab.

Any hint?

Thx, Peter

you do the same for all vsys (1 API call per vsys) or set redistribution between VSYS (through the use of loopbacks)

Exactly. We don't set redistribution between vsys. For now, I don't know yet exactly how to do it right (one IP call to one IP). 2 loopbacks means 2 IPs and 2 IP calls, what we don't want. I can't reconfigure existing loopback as share interface, because its production and UID will stop working... But I will look in tech guide.
