Logged in Admins _cliuser normal?

L2 Linker

Hi there,


Today I accidentally discovered the user _cliuser in the widget Logged in Admins on the dashboard of our Palo Alto Firewall.



After a few seconds it was gone.
Unfortunately, I didn't find anything through the search, and seeing this for the first time, I'm confused.

Is that normal?


Thank you.

Hello.  From my own past experiences (why, just today....:P) I saw this same issue.  I think we both just coincidentally logged on when a process was running from the mgmt plane.  I am pretty certain that it is ok.

The _cliuser is utilized for certain scripts on the firewall that run in the background for various tasks and isn't a concern at all.
