License expiry

L0 Member

We're waiting for our new licenses to come through and getting a little nervous, of particular concern is our PAN-DB license which has the expiry date as 11/2/2020. 


It is my understanding that custom categories will work and it's just PAN-DB look ups that will not - what about the Allow List in the URL filtering security profile? (it's an old version!)


Also, does anyone know if our license will still work on Monday or actually expire at midnight Sunday into Monday? And is it based on the firewall's local time or will it be PDT?

When a license expires 'dynamic updates' (cloud lookups in the case of pandb) will no longer succeed

All content already in the firewall will continue to work, so the existing cache will keep working and your custom apps will work even without a license (you actually don't need a license for those)

I'm not sure if cutoff is midnight starting or ending the final date. It will be PDT however
