New Features

Flow Logs Ingestion Update
After you enable flow logs, Prisma Cloud will ingest flow log data for the last seven days only. If flow logs become unavailable for any reason such as if you manually disable flow logs, or modify API permissions, or an internal error occurs, when access is restored logs from the preceding seven days only are ingested.
Deletion of GCP Organization and Master Service Account
If you no longer want Prisma Cloud to monitor a GCP organization, or you want to delete a GCP project that you onboarded using a master service account, you can now delete the organization or project on Settings > Cloud Accounts.
Although the service stops ingesting data from the project or organization as soon as you delete it, all the data on your cloud resources is purged only after 24 hours. Therefore, if the deletion was unintentional you can onboard the account back within 24 hours to resume monitoring and retain the history on your cloud resources. The audit logs retain the activity history of the user who deleted the account, the name of the cloud account and when the action was performed.
In addition, when you delete a project on GCP, Prisma Cloud learns about it and automatically deletes the account from the list of monitored accounts on Settings > Cloud Accounts. To track the automatic deletion of the project, an audit log is generated.
RQL Enhancements for Functions
For Config RQL queries, view the results of the _DateTime.function as a column on the Investigate page, instead of locating and verifying the results within the resource JSON.
For example, the query
config where = 'aws-ec2-describe-instances' addcolumn _DateTime.ageInDays(launchTime)

adds a column for LaunchTime and displays the results on the page.


Functions also support auto-suggest when you enter the prefix _ in a json.rule or addcolumn attribute.
Saved Search for Identifying VM-Series Firewalls
Use the new saved search to list VM-Series Firewall instances that are deployed on your GCP, AWS, and Azure environments. You can use this saved search to easily create a policy and generate an alert if you want to ensure that your internet-facing workloads are secured with VM-Series firewalls.
where = 'gcloud-compute-instances-list' as X; config where = 'gcp-compute-disk-list' as Y; filter '$.X.disks[*].source contains $ and ($.Y.sourceImage contains vmseries-bundle or $.Y.sourceImage contains vmseries-byol)' ; show X;
