Configure a GlobalProtect Gateway

Configure a GlobalProtect gateway to enforce security policies and provide VPN access for your users.
After you complete the prerequisite tasks, configure the GlobalProtect Gateways.
  1. Add a gateway.
    1. Add
      a new gateway (
      Network
      GlobalProtect
      Gateways
      ).
    2. Name
      the gateway.
      The gateway name cannot contain spaces and must be unique for each virtual system. As a best practice, include the location or other descriptive information to help users and administrators identify the gateway.
    3. (
      Optional
      ) Select the virtual system
      Location
      to which this gateway belongs.
  2. Specify the network information that enables endpoints to connect to the gateway.
    If it does not already exist, create the network interface for the gateway.
    Do not attach an interface management profile that allows HTTP, HTTPS, Telnet, or SSH to the interface where you configure; doing so enables access to your management interface from the internet. Follow Best Practices for Securing Administrative Access to ensure that you are securing administrative access to your firewalls in a way that will prevent successful attacks.
    1. Select the
      Interface
      for the endpoints to use when communicating with the gateway.
    2. Specify the
      IP Address Type
      and
      IP Address
      for the gateway web service:
      • Set the
        IP Address Type
        to
        IPv4 Only
        ,
        IPv6 Only
        , or
        IPv4 and IPv6.
        Use
        IPv4 and IPv6
        if your network supports dual stack configurations, where IPv4 and IPv6 run at the same time.
      • The IP address must be compatible with the IP address type. For example,
        172.16.1.0
        for IPv4 addresses or
        21DA:D3:0::2F3b
        for IPv6 addresses. For dual stack configurations, enter both an IPv4 and IPv6 address.
  3. Configure Decryption log settings.
    You can log successful and unsuccessful TLS/SSL handshakes and you can forward Decryption logs to Log Collectors, other storage devices, and to specific administrators.
    • By default, the firewall logs only unsuccessful TLS handshakes. It is a best practice to log successful handshakes as well so that you gain visibility into as much decrypted traffic as available resources permit (but don’t decrypt private or sensitive traffic; follow decryption best practices and decrypt as much traffic as you can).
    • If you have not already done so, create a Log Forwarding profile to forward Decryption logs and specify it in the Gateway configuration.
    • If you log successful TLS handshakes in addition to unsuccessful TLS handshakes, configure a larger log storage space quota for the Decryption log (
      Device
      Setup
      Management
      Logging and Reporting Settings
      Log Storage
      ). The default quota (allocation) is one percent of the device’s log storage capacity for Decryption logs and one percent for the general decryption summary. There is no default allocation for hourly, daily, or weekly decryption summaries. Configure Decryption Logging provides more information about how to allocate firewall log space to Decryption logs.
  4. Specify how the gateway authenticates users.
    If an SSL/TLS service profile for the gateway does not already exist, Deploy Server Certificates to the GlobalProtect Components.
    If authentication profiles or certificate profiles do not already exist, use the authentication setup task to configure these profiles for the gateway.
    Configure any of the following gateway
    Authentication
    settings (
    Network
    GlobalProtect
    Gateways
    <gateway-config>
    Authentication
    ):
    • To secure communication between the gateway and the GlobalProtect app, select the
      SSL/TLS Service Profile
      for the gateway.
      The
      Max Version
      of TLS in the
      SSL/TLS Service Profile
      is
      TLSv1.2
      .
      TLSv1.3
      is currently not supported for the GlobalProtect app and Clientless VPN connections.
      To provide the strongest security, set the
      Min Version
      of the SSL/TLS service profile to
      TLSv1.2
      .
    • To authenticate users with a local user database or an external authentication service, such as LDAP, Kerberos, TACACS+, SAML, or RADIUS (including OTP),
      Add
      a
      Client Authentication
      configuration with the following settings:
      • Specify a
        Name
        to identify the client authentication configuration.
      • Identify the type of
        OS
        (operating system) to which this configuration applies. By default, the configuration applies to
        Any
        operating system.
      • Select or add an
        Authentication Profile
        to authenticate endpoints seeking access to the gateway.
      • Enter a custom
        Username Label
        for gateway login (for example,
        Email Address (username@domain)
        .
      • Enter a custom
        Password Label
        for gateway login (for example,
        Passcode
        for two-factor, token-based authentication).
      • Enter an
        Authentication Message
        to help end-users understand which credentials to use during login. The message can be up to 256 characters in length (default is
        Enter login credentials
        ).
      • Select one of the following options to define whether users can authenticate to the gateway using credentials and/or client certificates:
        • To require users to authenticate to the gateway using both user credentials AND a client certificate, set the
          Allow Authentication with User Credentials OR Client Certificate
          option to
          No (User Credentials AND Client Certificate Required)
          (default).
        • To allow users to authenticate to the gateway using either user credentials OR a client certificate, set the
          Allow Authentication with User Credentials OR Client Certificate
          option to
          Yes (User Credentials OR Client Certificate Required)
          .
          When you set this option to
          Yes
          , the gateway first checks the endpoint for a client certificate. If the endpoint does not have a client certificate or you do not configure a certificate profile for your client authentication configuration, the endpoint user can then authenticate to the gateway using his or her user credentials.
    • To authenticate users based on a client certificate or a smart card/CAC, select the corresponding
      Certificate Profile
      . You must pre-deploy the client certificate or Deploy User-Specific Client Certificates for Authentication using the Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP).
      • If you want to require users to authenticate to the gateway using both their user credentials and a client certificate, you must specify both a
        Certificate Profile
        and an authentication profile
      • If you want to allow users to authenticate to the gateway using either their user credentials or a client certificate and you specify an
        Authentication Profile
        for user authentication, then the
        Certificate Profile
        is optional.
      • If you want to allow users to authenticate to the gateway using either their user credentials or a client certificate and you don’t select an
        Authentication Profile
        for user authentication, then the
        Certificate Profile
        is required.
      • If you do not configure any
        Authentication Profile
        that matches a specific OS, then the
        Certificate Profile
        is required.
      If you allow users to authenticate to the gateway using either user credentials or a client certificate, do not select a
      Certificate Profile
      that has the
      Username Field
      configured as
      None
      .
    • To use two-factor authentication, select both an
      Authentication Profile
      and a
      Certificate Profile
      . This requires the user to authenticate successfully using both methods to gain access.
      (
      Chrome only
      ) If you configure the gateway to use client certificates and LDAP for two-factor authentication, Chromebooks that run Chrome OS 47 or later versions encounter excessive prompts to select the client certificate. To prevent excessive prompts, configure a policy to specify the client certificate in the Google Admin console and then deploy that policy to your managed Chromebooks:
      1. Log in to the Google Admin console and select
        Device management
        Chrome management
        User settings
        .
      2. In the Client Certificates section, enter the following URL pattern to
        Automatically Select Client Certificate for These Sites
        :
        {"pattern": "https://[*.]","filter":{}}
      3. Click
        Save
        . The Google Admin console deploys the policy to all devices within a few minutes.
      4. To block GlobalProtect users from logging in from quarantined devicesto the GlobalProtect gateway, select
        Block login for quarantined devices.
  5. Enable tunneling and then configure the tunnel parameters.
    Tunnel parameters are required for an external gateway; they are optional for an internal gateway.
    To force the use of SSL-VPN tunnel mode, disable (clear) the
    Enable IPSec
    option. By default, SSL-VPN is used only if the endpoint fails to establish an IPSec tunnel.
    Extended authentication (X-Auth) is supported only on IPSec tunnels.
    If you
    Enable X-Auth Support
    , GlobalProtect IPSec Crypto profiles are not used.
    For more information on supported cryptographic algorithms, refer to GlobalProtect App Cryptographic Functions.
    1. In the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
      Agent
      Tunnel Settings
      .
    2. Enable
      Tunnel Mode
      to enable split tunneling.
    3. Select the
      Tunnel Interface
      that you defined when you created the network interface for the gateway.
    4. (
      Optional
      ) Specify the maximum number of users (
      Max User
      ) that can access the gateway at the same time for authentication, HIP updates, and GlobalProtect app updates. The range of values is displayed when the field is empty and varies based on the platform.
    5. Enable IPSec
      and then select a
      GlobalProtect IPSec Crypto
      profile to secure the VPN tunnels between the GlobalProtect app and the gateway. The
      default
      profile uses AES-128-CBC encryption and sha1 authentication.
      IPSec is not supported with Windows 10 UWP endpoints.
      You can also create a
      New GlobalProtect IPSec Crypto
      profile (
      GlobalProtect IPSec Crypto
      drop-down) and then configure the following settings:
      1. Specify a
        Name
        to identify the profile.
      2. Add
        the
        Authentication
        and
        Encryption
        algorithms that VPN peers can use to negotiate the keys for securing data in the tunnel:
        • Encryption
          —If you don’t know what the VPN peers support, you can add multiple encryption algorithms in top-to-bottom order of most-to-least secure, as follows:
          aes-256-gcm
          ,
          aes-128-gcm
          ,
          aes-128-cbc
          . The peers will negotiate the strongest algorithm to establish the tunnel.
        • Authentication
          —Select the authentication algorithm (
          sha1
          ) to provide data integrity and authenticity protection. Although the authentication algorithm is required for the profile, this setting only to the AES-CBC cipher (
          aes-128-cbc
          ). If you use an AES-GCM encryption algorithm (
          aes-256-gcm
          or
          aes-128-gcm
          ), the setting is ignored because these ciphers provide native ESP integrity protection.
      3. Click
        OK
        to save the profile.
    6. (
      Optional
      )
      Enable X-Auth Support
      if any endpoint must connect to the gateway using a third-party VPN (for example, a VPNC client running on Linux). If you enable X-Auth, you must provide the
      Group
      name and
      Group Password
      (if the endpoint requires it). By default, the user is not required to re-authenticate if the key that establishes the IPSec tunnel expires. To require users to re-authenticate, disable the option to
      Skip Auth on IKE Rekey
      .
      To
      Enable X-Auth Support
      for strongSwan endpoints, you must also disable the option to
      Skip Auth on IKE Rekey
      because these endpoints require re-authentication during IKE SA negotiation. In addition, you must add the
      closeaction=restart
      setting to the
      conn %default
      section of the strongSwan IPSec configuration file. (See Set Up Authentication for strongSwan Ubuntu and CentOS Endpoints for more information on the StrongSwan IPSec configuration.)
      Although X-Auth access is supported on iOS and Android endpoints, it provides limited GlobalProtect functionality on these endpoints. Instead, use the GlobalProtect app for simplified access to all security features that GlobalProtect provides on iOS and Android endpoints. The GlobalProtect app for iOS is available in the Apple App Store. The GlobalProtect app for Android is available in Google Play.
  6. (
    Tunnel Mode Only
    ) Specify selection criteria for your client settings configurations.
    The gateway uses the selection criteria to determine which configuration to deliver to the GlobalProtect apps that connect. If you have multiple configurations, you must make sure to order them correctly. As soon as the gateway finds a match (based on the
    Source User
    ,
    OS
    , and
    Source Address
    ), it delivers the associated configuration to the user. Therefore, more specific configurations must precede more general ones. See step 13 for instructions on ordering the list of configurations for client settings.
    1. In the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
      Agent
      Client Settings
      .
    2. Select an existing client settings configuration or
      Add
      a new one.
    3. Configure the following
      Config Selection Criteria
      :
      • To deploy this configuration to specific users or user groups,
        Add
        the
        Source User
        (or user group). To deploy this configuration only to users with apps in pre-logon mode, select
        pre-logon
        from the
        Source User
        drop-down; to deploy this configuration to all users, select
        any
        .
        To deploy the configuration to specific groups, you must first map users to groups as described when you Enable Group Mapping.
      • To deploy this configuration based on the endpoint operating system,
        Add
        an
        OS
        (such as Android or Chrome). To deploy this configuration to all operating systems, select
        Any
        .
      • To deploy this configuration based on user location,
        Add
        a source
        Region
        or
        IP address
        (IPv4 and IPv6). To deploy this configuration to all user locations, do not specify the
        Region
        or
        IP Address
        .
    4. Click
      OK
      to save your configuration selection criteria.
  7. (
    Tunnel Mode Only
    ) Configure authentication override settings to enable the gateway to generate and accept secure, encrypted cookies for user authentication. This capability allows the user to provide login credentials only once during the specified period of time (for example, every 24 hours).
    By default, gateways authenticate users with an authentication profile and optional certificate profile. When authentication override is enabled, GlobalProtect caches the result of a successful login and uses the cookie to authenticate the user instead of prompting the user for credentials. For more information, see Cookie Authentication on the Portal or Gateway. If client certificates are required, the endpoint must also provide a valid certificate to gain access.
    If you must immediately block access to a device whose cookie has not expired (for example, if the device is lost or stolen), you can immediately Block Endpoint Access by adding the device to a block list.
    1. On the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
      Agent
      Client Settings
      .
    2. Select an existing client settings configuration or
      Add
      a new one.
    3. Configure the following
      Authentication Override
      settings:
      • Name
        —Identifies the configuration.
      • Generate cookie for authentication override
        —Enables the gateway to generate encrypted, endpoint-specific cookies and issue authentication cookies to the endpoint.
      • Accept cookie for authentication override
        —Enables the gateway to authenticate users with a valid, encrypted cookie. When the app presents a valid cookie, the gateway verifies that the cookie was encrypted by the portal or gateway, decrypts the cookie, and then authenticates the user.
        The GlobalProtect app must know the username of the connecting user in order to match and retrieve the associated authentication cookies from the user’s endpoint. After the app retrieves the cookies, it sends them to the portal or gateway for user authentication.
        (
        Windows only
        ) If you set the Use Single Sign-On option to
        Yes
        (SSO is enabled) in the portal agent configuration (
        Network
        GlobalProtect
        Portals
        <portal-config>
        Agent
        <agent-config>.
        App
        ), the GlobalProtect app uses the Windows username to retrieve the local authentication cookie for the user. If you set the
        Use Single Sign-On
        option to
        No
        (SSO is disabled), you must enable the GlobalProtect app to Save User Credentials in order for the app to retrieve the authentication cookie for the user. Set the
        Save User Credentials
        option to
        Yes
        to save both the username and password or
        Save Username Only
        to save only the username.
      • Cookie Lifetime
        —Specifies the hours, days, or weeks for which the cookie is valid (default is 24 hours). The range for hours is 1 to 72; for weeks is 1 to 52; and for days is 1 to 365. After the cookie expires, the user must re-enter their login credentials and then the gateway subsequently encrypts a new cookie to send to the app. This value can be the same as or different from the
        Cookie Lifetime
        that you configure for the portal.
      • Certificate to Encrypt/Decrypt Cookie
        —Selects the RSA certificate used to encrypt and decrypt the cookie. You must use the same certificate on the portal and gateway.
        As a best practice, configure the RSA certificate to use the strongest digest algorithm that your network supports.
        The portal and gateway use the RSA encrypt padding scheme PKCS#1 V1.5 to generate the cookie (using the public certificate key) and to decrypt the cookie (using the private certificate key).
  8. (
    Tunnel Mode only
    Optional
    ) Configure client level IP pools used to assign IPv4 or IPv6 addresses to the virtual network adapters on the endpoints that connect to the gateway.
    You must only either the client level (
    Network
    GlobalProtect
    Gateways
    <gateway-config>
    GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration
    Agent
    Client Settings
    <client-setting>
    Configs
    IP Pools
    ) or the gateway level (
    Network
    GlobalProtect
    Gateways
    <gateway-config>
    GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration
    Agent
    Client IP Pool
    ).
    IP pools and split tunnel settings are not required for internal gateway configurations in non-tunnel mode because apps use the network settings assigned to the physical network adapter.
    Using address objects when configuring gateway IP address pools is not supported.
    1. On the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
      Agent
      Client Settings
      .
    2. Select an existing client settings configuration or
      Add
      a new one.
    3. Configure any of the following
      IP Pools
      settings:
      • To specify the authentication server IP address pool for endpoints that require static IP addresses, enable the option to
        Retrieve Framed-IP-Address attribute from authentication server
        and then
        Add
        the subnet or IP address range to the
        Authentication Server IP Pool
        . When the tunnel is established, an interface is created on the remote user’s computer with an address in the subnet or IP range that matches the Framed-IP attribute of the authentication server.
        The authentication server IP address pool must be large enough to support all concurrent connections. IP address assignment is static and retained even after the user disconnects.
      • To specify the
        IP Pool
        used to assign IPv4 or IPv6 addresses to the endpoints that connect to the gateway,
        Add
        the IP address subnet/range. You can add IPv4 or IPv6 subnets or ranges, or a combination of the two.
        To ensure proper routing back to the gateway, you must use a different range of IP addresses from those assigned to existing IP pools on the gateway (if applicable) and to the endpoints that are physically connected to your LAN. We recommend that you use a private IP addressing scheme.
    4. Click
      OK
      to save the IP pool configuration.
  9. (
    Tunnel Mode only
    Optional
    ) Disable the split tunnel to ensure that all traffic(including local subnet traffic) goes through the VPN tunnel for inspection and policy enforcement.
  10. (
    Tunnel Mode only
    Optional
    ) Configure DNS settings for a client settings configuration.
    If you configure at least one DNS server or DNS suffix in the client settings configuration (
    Network
    GlobalProtect
    Gateways
    <gateway-config>
    Agent
    Client Settings
    <client-settings-config>
    Network Services
    ), the gateway sends the configuration for both the DNS server and DNS suffix to the endpoint. This occurs even when you configure global (gateway level) DNS servers and DNS suffixes.
    If you do not configure any DNS servers or DNS suffixes in the client settings configuration, the gateway sends the global DNS servers and DNS suffixes to the endpoint, if configured (
    Network
    GlobalProtect
    Gateways
    <gateway-config>
    Agent
    Network Services
    ).
    1. In the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
      Agent
      Client Settings
      .
    2. Select an existing client settings configuration or
      Add
      a new one.
    3. Configure any of the following
      Network Services
      settings:
      • Specify the IP address of the
        DNS Server
        to which the GlobalProtect app with this client settings configuration sends DNS queries. You can add up to 10 DNS servers by separating each IP address with a comma.
      • Specify the
        DNS Suffix
        that the endpoint should use locally when encountering an unqualified hostname, which the endpoint cannot resolve.
  11. (
    Tunnel Mode Only
    ) Arrange the gateway agent configurations so that the proper configuration is deployed to each GlobalProtect app.
    When an app connects, the gateway compares the source information in the packet against the agent configurations you defined (
    Agent
    Client Settings
    ). As with security rule evaluation, the gateway looks for a match starting from the top of the list. When it finds a match, it delivers the corresponding configuration to the app.
    • To move a gateway configuration up in the list of configurations, select the configuration and
      Move Up
      .
    • To move a gateway configuration down in the list of configurations, select the configuration and
      Move Down
      .
  12. (
    Tunnel Mode Only
    Optional
    ) Configure the global IP address pools used to assign IPv4 or IPv6 addresses to the virtual network adapters on all endpoints that connect to the gateway.
    This option enables you to simplify the configuration by defining IP pools at the gateway level instead of defining IP pools for each client setting in the gateway configuration.
    You must configure IP pools only at either the gateway level (
    Network
    GlobalProtect
    Gateways
    <gateway-config>
    Agent
    Client IP Pool
    ) or the client level (
    Network
    GlobalProtect
    Gateways
    <gateway-config>
    Agent
    Client Settings
    <client-setting>
    IP Pools
    ).
    Using address objects when configuring gateway IP address pools is not supported.
    1. In the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
      Agent
      Client IP Pool
      .
    2. Add
      the IP address subnet or range used to assign IPv4 or IPv6 addresses to all endpoints that connect to the gateway. You can add IPv4 or IPv6 subnets or ranges, or a combination of the two.
      To ensure proper routing back to the gateway, you must use a different range of IP addresses from those assigned to existing IP pools on the gateway (if applicable) and to the endpoints that are physically connected to your LAN. We recommend that you use a private IP addressing scheme.
  13. (
    Tunnel Mode Only
    ) Specify the network configuration settings for the endpoint.
    Network settings are not required for internal gateway configurations in non-tunnel mode because the GlobalProtect app uses the network settings assigned to the physical network adapter.
    In the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
    Agent
    Network Services
    and then configure any of the following network configuration settings:
    • If the firewall has an interface that is configured as a DHCP client, set the
      Inheritance Source
      to that interface so the GlobalProtect app is assigned the same settings as the DHCP client. You can also enable the option to
      Inherit DNS Suffixes
      from the inheritance source.
    • Manually assign the
      Primary DNS
      server,
      Secondary DNS
      server,
      Primary WINS
      server,
      Secondary WINS
      server, and
      DNS Suffix
      . You can enter multiple DNS suffixes (up to 100) by separating each suffix with a comma.
      The
      DNS Suffix
      cannot contain any non-ASCII characters.
  14. (
    Optional
    ) Modify the default timeout settings for endpoints.
    In the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
    Agent
    Connection Settings
    and then configure the following in the Timeout Configuration area:
    • Modify the maximum
      Login Lifetime
      for a single gateway login session (default is 30 days). During the lifetime, the user stays logged in as long as the gateway receives a HIP check from the endpoint within the
      Inactivity Logout
      period. After this time, the login session ends automatically.
    • Modify the
      Inactivity Logout
      period to specify the amount of time after which an inactive session is automatically logged out (default is 3 hours). Users are logged out of GlobalProtect if the gateway does not receive a HIP check from the endpoint during the configured time period.
    • Modify the
      Disconnect on Idle
      setting to specify the number of minutes after which idle users are logged out of GlobalProtect (default is 180 minutes). Users are logged out of GlobalProtect if the GlobalProtect app has not routed traffic through the VPN tunnel within the configured time period. This setting applies only to GlobalProtect apps that use the On-Demand connect method.
  15. (
    Optional
    ) Configure automatic restoration of SSL VPN tunnels.
    If the GlobalProtect connection is lost due to network instability or a change in the endpoint state, you can allow or prevent the GlobalProtect app from automatically reestablishing the VPN tunnel for specific gateways by configuring automatic restoration of SSL VPN tunnels.
    1. In the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
      Agent
      Connection Settings
      .
    2. Configure one of the following options for Authentication Cookie Usage Restrictions:
      • To prevent the GlobalProtect app from automatically reestablishing the VPN tunnel for this gateway,
        Disable Automatic Restoration of SSL VPN
        .
      • To allow the GlobalProtect app to automatically reestablish the VPN tunnel for this gateway, disable (clear) the option to
        Disable Automatic Restoration of SSL VPN
        (default).
  16. (
    Optional
    ) Configure source IP address enforcement for authentication cookies.
    You can configure the GlobalProtect portal or gateway to accept cookies from endpoints only when the IP address of the endpoint matches the original source IP addresses for which the cookie was issued or when the IP address of the endpoint matches a specific network IP address range. You can define the network IP address range using a CIDR subnet mask, such as /24 or /32. For example, if an authentication cookie was originally issued to an endpoint with a public source IP address of 201.109.11.10, and the subnet mask of the network IP address range is set to /24, the authentication cookie is subsequently valid on endpoints with public source IP addresses within the 201.109.11.0/24 network IP address range.
    1. In the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
      Agent
      Connection Settings
      .
    2. In the Authentication Cookie Usage Restrictions section,
      Restrict Authentication Cookie Usage (for Automatic Restoration of VPN tunnel or Authentication Override)
      and then configure one of the following conditions:
      • If you select
        The original Source IP for which the authentication cookie was issued
        , the authentication cookie is valid only if the public source IP address of the endpoint that is attempting to use the cookie is the same public source IP address of the endpoint to which the cookie was originally issued.
      • If you select
        The original Source IP network range
        , the authentication cookie is valid only if the public source IP address of the endpoint attempting to use the cookie is within the designated network IP address range. Enter a
        Source IPv4 Netmask
        or
        Source IPv6 Netmask
        to define the subnet mask of the network IP address range for which the authentication cookie is valid (for example,
        32
        or
        128
        ).
  17. (
    Optional
    ) Define the notification messages that end users see when a security rule with a host information profile (HIP) is enforced.
    This step applies only if you created host information profiles and added them to your security policies. See Host Information for details on configuring the HIP feature and information about creating HIP notification messages.
    1. On the GlobalProtect Gateway Configuration dialog, select
      Agent
      HIP Notification
      .
    2. Select an existing HIP notification configuration or
      Add
      a new one.
    3. Configure the following settings:
      • Select the
        Host Information
        object or profile to which this message applies.
      • Depending on whether you want to display the message when the corresponding HIP profile is matched in policy or when the profile is not matched, select
        Match Message
        or
        Not Match Message
        and then
        Enable
        notifications. You can create messages for both a match and a non-match instance based on the objects on which you are matching and what your objectives are for the policy. For the
        Match Message
        , you can also enable the option to
        Include Mobile App List
        to indicate what applications can trigger the HIP match.
      • Select whether you want to display the message as a
        System Tray Balloon
        or as a
        Pop Up Message
        .
      • Enter and format the text of your message (
        Template
        ) and then click
        OK
        .
      • Repeat these steps for each message you want to define.
  18. Save the gateway configuration.
    1. Click
      OK
      to save the settings.
    2. Commit
      the changes.
  19. (
    Optional
    ) To configure the GlobalProtect app to display a label that identifies the location of this gateway when end users are connected, specify the physical location of the firewall on which you configured this gateway.
    When end users experience unusual behavior, such as poor network performance, they can provide this location information to their support or Help Desk professionals to assist with troubleshooting. They can also use this location information to determine their proximity to the gateway. Based on their proximity, they can evaluate whether they need to switch to a closer gateway.
    If you do not specify a gateway location, the GlobalProtect app displays an empty location field.
    • In the CLI
      —Use the following CLI command to specify the physical location of the firewall on which you configured the gateway:
      <username@hostname>
      set deviceconfig setting global-protect location
      <location>
    • In the XML API
      —Use the following XML API to specify the physical location of the firewall on which you configured the gateway:
      • devices
        —name of the firewall on which you configured the gateway
      • location
        —location of the firewall on which you configured the gateway
      curl -k -F file=@
      filename.txt
      -g 'https://
      <firewall>
      /api/?key=
      <apikey>
      &type=config&action=set&xpath=/config/devices/entry[@name='
      <device-name>
      ']/deviceconfig/setting/global-protect&element=<location>
      location-string
      </location>'
