  • Configuration has not been pushed
    —So far, no configuration has been pushed to Prisma Access.
  • This configuration is empty
    —A user pushed a blank configuration to Prisma Access. In this case, a configuration was previously in place, so the push to Prisma Access might have been to remove the configuration. Go to
    Push Config
    to review recent changes.
  • Out of sync
    —A user has pushed a configuration to Prisma Access but there is an error or warning related to the push. This might be a configuration issue or it might be an issue related to the push to Prisma Access.

If you see something unexpected, click on the status to open a map view that shows the locations where you have either mobile users (GlobalProtect or explicit proxy connections), remote networks, or service connections.
