Report an Issue From the GlobalProtect App for Linux
When you experience unusual behavior such as poor network performance or a connection is not established with the portal and gateway, you can report an issue directly to Cortex Data Lake to which your administrator can access. You no longer need to manually collect and send the GlobalProtect app logs through email or to store them on a cloud drive.
You can only report an issue to your administrator using the GUI version of the GlobalProtect app for Linux.
