You have to make sure that traffic among those VLAN passes through the PA firewall then only you can monitor and apply policies.


If the switch have SVI then the traffic will direclty move between the vlan it will not pass through the firewall. One thing you can try is to create the L3 subinterfaces on the firewall and remove the SVI from the switch.




By default the intrazone traffic is allowed and you will not get logging so to log the traffic you have to create security policy as well to log the traffic and to have better control over the traffic.


The link between switch and PA should be a trunk link if you are creating subinterfaces on PA.


Hope this helps!
