SAML for external admin, local admin for internal admin

L0 Member

Hi, been racking my brain trying to figure this one out.

Essentially, to comply with regional guidelines for our client, we are enforcing MFA for all administrative accounts on the Palo Altos, which are internet facing. 

I have implemented SAML authenticating with Azure AD with Microsoft Authenticator for 2FA, which is all fine and well, and I am ready to delete the local admin accounts but surely that's really risky, in case the firewall has an issue with reaching the idp or something else happens, then it's a total lockout.

Is there a way of allowing ONLY SAML login from external whitelisted IP addresses (I assume managed with Interface Mgmt under Network), but allow a local admin account access to Panorama from, say, a specific internal interface such as Management?

Thanks in advance!
