URL Categories different in Panorama than PA Firewall

Not applicable

I have noticed some of the URL categories are different in my panorama box when compared to my PA firewall when creating custom reports. I have verified they are running the same PAN os level (3.1.8). This makes creating custom reports on my panorama difficult when trying to filter on these categories since my PA4020 is logging these as a different category.

For example on my PA4020 I have a custom URL log report setup filtering on the URL adult-and-pornagraphy. When I go to setup the same report on the Panorama I don't have adult-and-pornography as a choice. I only have adult-or-sexually-explicit as an option. My PA4020 sends all of its logs to the panorama, but since these categories don't match between the PA and the Panorama I can never get the URL report I am after on the panorama.

Any ideas or plan to fix this? It seems to me the panorama should have the same categories as the PA firewalls. Anyone else notice the same issue on their devices?

nvm... found the answer in an earlier post, but here is what I did....

To identify which url-database your panorama is using, go to the CLI and input the following command...

panorama>show system setting url-database

if it says surfcontrol (which apparently the panorama image I got, comes with by default) then use this command...

panorama>set system setting url-database brightcloud

You're panorama box will reboot after this. You're panorama device URL categories should match the PA firewalls now.
