Problem with Autologon GP on Windows 10

L4 Transporter

Hi all,


We have an issue with windows 10 machinesw and autologon in GP. When we powered on win7 machine the first time it took user credential properly an logon on the system automatically. On Win10 we need to login the first time manually, the following times w10 logon automatically well.


Someone knows if exist any problem on w10 machines and autologon GP and how we can fix it? 


Palo Alto details:

PanOS: 7.1.9

GP agent: 3.1.1

Did you choose Global Protect as login option on the windows 10 login screen?

Hi all,


If i select GP option on logon W10 machine it works properly. The problem is when the user forget  to click this button, but its impossible (or logging by biometrics) to connect automatically to GP when the user was logged in.


In W7 it works automatically, but in W10 you need to choose GP option.



There would be some way to force GP login without choosing GP option on W10 login ?


Thanks in advance



You're right about the issue with biometrics login. At the moment this is only possible with a workaround, but it is possible to use biometrics login in combination with a seamless GP login.


It is possible to set the default login option by active directory group policy (can't remember the settingname right now, but I am sure you'll find it somewhere in the internet ;)

lloks like a known bug on GP 3.1.1 and windows 10 Auto-logon(pre logon)

seems like it might have also been addressed

might need a reinstall or newer version


see known issues GP 3.1.1


What known issue are you talking about? I cannot see one which matches the description of this "problem".

We also solved this "problem" with the group policy setting, so the users do not need to remember to click the global protect login option.

Hello all,



I am searching the settingname to set the default login option but i only find how to set the default domain... Do you remember the settingname to set default login ?


Thanks in advance.




Thanks vsys_remo for the URL! I am not an expert with GPOs and the guide helps me to understand some concepts. I did perform some test with registry but i didn't find the correct CLSID. 


Anyone knows the name of "default" field or the correct CLSID to login with GP ?


Thanks for your support


Kind Regards
