URL-Profile Duplicates

L0 Member

I have a PA running multiple vsys, and I'm getting the following error on multiple vsys instances:


Warning: url-profile Demo URL Alert(id: 254) is considered duplicate of Demo URL Alert(id: 252)


Is there a way to see what id:254 and id:252 are referring to so I can remove the duplicate? The profile is a clone of the default with very little customization.

I have exactly the same problem.

Did you find a solution ?


It seems that this warning appears when the profile is used in multiples vsys.

This seems to be happening only for URL filtering profiles. It doesn't trigger warnings for other security profiles.


Try this workaround:
Create a custom URL category (shared) with some random URL in it. Then apply an action other than 'none' for that category on your shared URL filtering profile.

It should clear the warning messages, even though the profile is exactly the same for all virtual systems.
