Getting Around LIVEcommunity: Let's Take a Tour




LIVEcommunity Discussions is where you’ll find member-generated discussions about Palo Alto Networks products. It’s a place to find answers, get support, and share knowledge related to Palo Alto Networks tools and products. Our Discussions area is also a space to engage in conversation with peers in the cybersecurity and IT community.


To discuss a particular product, click the corresponding board in the general discussions area—you can then post directly into that forum. Our Discussions areas are a living, evolving, interactive part of our community and just as the cybersecurity landscape and available tools change, so will our forums.
