Cortex Data Lake Software Compatibility

Find out which software versions to use so that you can forward firewall log data to Cortex™ Data Lake.
To forward firewall log data to Cortex™ Data Lake, you must ensure that your firewalls are running a supported PAN-OS® version. The PAN-OS version you need depends on whether you use Panorama™ to onboard several firewalls simultaneously or you onboard firewalls individually.
To onboard firewalls to Cortex Data Lake using Panorama, you must also install a supported version of the Cloud Services plugin. If you use the Cloud Services plugin to enable Prisma™ Access, ensure that your Panorama is running supported versions of PAN-OS and the Cloud Services plugin.
Version Requirements for Panorama-Managed Firewalls
Software versions required to integrate a Panorama-managed deployment with Cortex Data Lake.

Version
Description
PAN-OS
Minimum:
  • Americas and Europe: PAN-OS 8.1
  • Other regions: Panorama 9.0.6-h3
Recommended: PAN-OS 8.1.3 or later
To forward logs from Panorama-managed firewalls to Cortex Data Lake in the Americas or Europe regions, both Panorama and the firewalls must run PAN-OS 8.1 or a later version. Forwarding logs to any other region requires Panorama 9.0.6-h3 or a later version.
For enhanced application logging and more reliable service, upgrade to PAN-OS 8.1.3 or a later version.
Cloud Services plugin
Minimum:
  • Americas and Europe: 1.4.0
  • Other regions: 1.5.0-h6
Recommended: the latest version
The Cloud Services plugin enables you to send log data from Panorama-managed firewalls. To download the plugin, see the step describing how to install the plugin when you Activate Cortex Data Lake (Panorama-Managed).
Ensure that your Panorama is running a PAN-OS version that supports your Cloud Services plugin version. Failure to do so can result in a loss of data.
