Is it required that Panorama Devices have Dynamic Updates scheduled ?

L1 Bithead

Our firewalls managed by Panorama are updated daily but the Panorama device itself isnt scheduled to be updated. 

Is this required ? Will the ACC tab on Panorama show the latest threats found on firewalls etc only if itself is updated ?

Yes. It's required to configure dynamic updates on Panorama because when you define
Security rules,
Security profiles,
application groups,
and other elements available in Panorama, these items are often dependent on Antivirus, Application, and Threat signatures.

So Keep Panorama updated with the most recent versions of these signatures to allow you to configure and push current rules and profiles to your managed firewalls.

You should configure your firewalls, and you also should configure Panorama to do the same. You can configure Panorama to retrieve these signatures and push them down to firewalls.
