New Features
Dashboard and Log Viewer Support for Cortex Data Lake Tenants in non-Americas
For Panorama Managed Prisma Access users with Cortex Data Lake hosted in the non-Americas region, you need to provide consent to allow Prisma Access to read and process data from the Cortex Data Lake in the non-Americas region.

Known Issues

Known Reports Issues
The security administrators cannot view dashboard and Log Viewer in Panorama Managed Prisma Access with Cortex Data Lake hosted in the non-Americas region.
The file hash search shows screenshots from WildFire analysis only for samples analyzed from July 2020 and after.
The search results for a file hash and URL can sometimes timeout to display the results.
The search results for URLs with grayware may sometimes throw an error.
The Coverage search results for a file hash can sometimes show an error instead of displaying the threat protections that are available for the file.
, the number of users, files, and threats, for an application may not match between Dashboards and the Log Viewer.
Dashboards can sometimes time out if you are using a large amount of Cortex Data Lake log storage (for example, if you have more than 100 Cortex Data Lake licenses, you might be using a large amount of log storage).
The Best Practices dashboard for Prisma Access does not display data for WildFire Setup best practice checks.
This data displays for the AIOps for NGFW Best Practices dashboard, but is not yet available for the Best Practices dashboard in Prisma Access.

Recent Fixes

Fixed Reports Issues
Sometimes, the total number of remote network sites displayed in the Usage report is different than the total number of remote network sites displayed on the Prisma Access Overview.
In the PDF version of the Usage report, the first page summary lists the number of Prisma Access locations that you’re using; the number shown might not be accurate.
In the Usage report, some widgets display a trend over time, and the widget x-axis is what indicates the time over which the data is displayed. Sometimes, the x-axis adjusts to only show the time for which there was data, instead of the filter you selected (24 hours, a week, or a month).
In the User Activity Report, the doughnut chart described as showing total data transfer and sessions across all URL categories, is actually showing data transfer and sessions only for the top 10 URL categories.
The overall bandwidth consumption graph in the Usage Report shows the ingress bandwidth trend instead of overall bandwidth.
In the Usage reports, the widget that shows data on the Top Prisma Access Locations for Remote Networks might show only partial or obscured location names.
New Prisma Access Cloud Management instances will show only the Usage report at first. It’ll take up to 8 hours for the App report and the User Activity to populate after onboarding.
For managed firewalls running versions earlier than PAN-OS 10.0.7, the device details don't include the name of the Panorama that's managing the firewall. Device details includes this information for firewalls running PAN-OS 10.0.7 and later.
For certain widgets or values, the Usage report does not display the data you’d expect. For example, the allocated bandwidth for remote networks should display how much bandwidth you've allocated across Prisma Access locations (regardless of usage). However, it instead displays the amount of bandwidth allocated only to Prisma Access locations with active remote network sites.
For now, you can add up to 14 scheduled reports.
