Rule hit count or unused rule in custom reports or CLI

L0 Member

There are no fields related to rule hit count or any way to identify unused rules in Panorama custom reports. Is there a way to get a consolidated view of unused rules across all device groups at once and not just through the policy page per device group?

Hi @x2aembre ,


There currently isn't a way to view a consolidated view of all unused rules across all device groups. It can only be accomplished per device group.

Depending on whether or not it would actually be worth your time, you could always utilize the API to pull the rule hit count and build your own report graph. Obviously I don't think that's the answer that you were really looking for, but it does function perfectly fine if you absolutely must present this information in a uniform report.
