Import Panorama Configuration Into Expedition and export Device Specific configuration

L1 Bithead

Hi Experts, I am quiet new to Expedition, currently i am involved in a mass project where i have to migrate exiting Palo Alto Firewall into new. The existing firewall is managed by panorama which have tons of Network addresses and security policies which also uses shared object and polices from panorama.

    Now my objective is to import that panorama config into expedition and export out config related to specific firewall that i am planning to migrate.

Is there any documentation or video on this?

Hi @LijoMathai ,


I have migrated a single firewall configuration to Panorama using Expedition.  So, the reverse should work, also.  Here are the steps:


  1. Import the NGFW configuration 1st.  The 1st imported PAN-OS configuration is the base config.  I personally like to load the Day 1 Configuration on my NGFW and use it as my base config.  In that way, I have a lot of best practices configured.
  2. Import the Panorama config into Expedition next.  Look at the dashboard and fix any items, if desired.
  3. Under Export drag the source configuration items on the left under templates to Device or Network on the right.  Drag the policies and objects on the left to vsys1 on the right.
  4. Merge and export.






Edit:  Hi @LijoMathai , the steps above work if the new NGFW is not managed by Panorama.  Is that what you want?
