PAN-OS command for view a rule

L1 Bithead



I am looking for a command in PAN-OS for view one rule created by GUI but I can't find it.


I want to view a rule configured searching it by rule name or by rule number. Best the first option.


Anybody can help me?


Thanks in advance

Hi @carlostg ,



Below commands should help you to see the policies configured on the firewall. You can filter the output by putting required filter after pipe (|)  to see exact matching policies.



show running security-policy

show running nat-policy


e.g. If you want to see only names on the security policy without any details, then you can try below syntax. Accordingly you can try different match conditions to filter the security polices.


show running security-policy | match index


Hope it helps!


Thank you @SutareMayur .


I tried


show running security-policy | match hello


but it doesn't work. It doesn't show me anything


I also tried


show running security-policy | match rule eq hello


and It says invalid syntax


I have a rule name hello to test


I want to view the rule named hello with all the details


Could anybody help me?
