Panorama-shared objects

L4 Transporter

I am just setting up a panorama with 25 managed firewalls.

How can I have shared objects that are only shared between few firewalls but not all? My perimneter firewalls have huge number of objects which I would not like sharing with other remote firewalls but to some datacenter firewalls. how can I achieve this?

Take a look at this document


Panorama has the option to disable the Share Unused Address and Service Objects with Devices (which is enabled by default) so that you're only sharing objects if it's actually needed in the configuration. 

Hi @SThatipelly ,

In addition to what @BPry explained I would also suggest to organize your device group in hierarchical structure

Something like this:


-- Perimeter-FWs

---- Perimeter-FW-01

---- Perimeter-FW-02

---- Perimeter-FW-03

-- DataCenter-FWs

---- DataCenter-FW-01

---- DataCenter-FW-02

---- DataCenter-FW-03



- Everything defined in "Shared" device group will be inherited by all device groups. This is build-in device-group which always sits on top.

- Everything defined in "Perimeter-FWs" will be inherited only by device groups that are children of this group

- Everything defined in "DataCenter-FWs" will be inherited only by device groups that are children of this group


Probably better explanation could be found here -
