The following table lists the options that you can configure
in the Windows registry and macOS plist to customize how the user
interacts with the GlobalProtect app.
Some settings do not have a corresponding portal configuration
setting on the web interface and must be configured using the Windows
Registry, Msiexec, or macOS plist. These settings are listed in
the table as “Not in portal.” They include, but are not limited
to, settings such as the following:
