Host App Updates on the Portal
The simplest way to deploy the GlobalProtect app software is to download the new app installation package to the firewall that is hosting your portal, and then activate the software for download to the apps connecting to the portal. To do this automatically, the firewall must have a service route that enables it to access the Palo Alto Networks Update Server. If the firewall does not have internet access, you can download the app software package from the Palo Alto Networks Software Updates support site using an internet-connected computer, and then manually upload it to the firewall.
You must have a valid Palo Alto Networks account to log in to and download software from the Software Updates page. If you cannot log in and need assistance, go to https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/support/tabs/overview.html.
You define how the app software updates are deployed in the portal agent configurations—whether they occur automatically when the app connects to the portal, whether the user is prompted to upgrade the app, or whether the end user can manually check for and download a new app version. For details on creating an agent configuration, see Define the GlobalProtect Agent Configurations.
