tft export / scp export privilege level question

Not applicable


why do tft export and scp export require write access to the device?

They are not available on readonly users.

What version are you running?

Readonly users should be able to export. There is a known bug with 4.0 that should be fixed in 4.0.8

- Stefan


we currently have 4.0.5 installed.

The PAN-OS_4.1_CLI_Reference_Guide.pdf shows under the tftp export command:

"Required Privilege Levelsuperuser, vsysadmin, deviceadmin"

I will report back after patching the systems to 4.1




we are currently installing a new cluster and updated that to 4.1.1 which still has that limitation.

We didn't try 4.0.8 on the older cluster as we would like to get on 4.1.* working with the improved web ui.
