Learn about the Cortex Data Lake license—how you activate
your license depends on whether or not your firewalls are Panorama-managed.
Cortex Data Lake collects log data from next-generation
firewalls, Prisma Access, and Cortex XDR. When you purchase Cortex
Data Lake, all firewalls registered to your support account receive
a Cortex Data Lake license. You’ll also receive an auth code that
you’ll need to use to activate your Cortex Data Lake instance.
How you activate and implement Cortex Data Lake can vary depending
on the other products and services you’re using:
As part of another product subscription or evaluation, you might
have received some Cortex Data Lake log storage. To extend your
storage capacity, you can purchase and merge a new Cortex Data Lake
instance with the instance that came with your product. In this
case, consider that the product-included storage is tied to your
product license and the additional Cortex Data Lake instance has
its own separate license. If the additional Cortex Data Lake license
expires before your product license does, your Cortex Data Lake
storage capacity reverts to the amount of storage you received with
your product. While your storage capacity is reduced, your log storage quota settings don’t
change; the percentage of overall storage you’ve allocated for each
log type remains the same.
In all cases, when your Cortex Data Lake subscription expires,
you’ll have a 30-day grace period to renew your license before log
data is deleted.
