Configure WildFire Inline ML
WildFire inline ML prevents malicious content in real-time using machine learning on the firewall.
To enable your WildFire inline ML configuration, attach the Antivirus profile configured with the inline ML settings to a security policy rule (see Set Up Antivirus, Anti-Spyware, and Vulnerability Protection).
WildFire inline ML is not currently supported on the VM-50 or VM50L virtual appliance.
- To take advantage of WildFire inline ML, you must have an active WildFire subscription to analyze Windows executables.Verify that you have a WildFire subscription. To verify which subscriptions that you currently have licenses for, selectand verify that the appropriate licenses display and have not expired.DeviceLicenses

- (Optional)Add file exceptions to your Antivirus security profile if you encounter false-positives. This is typically done for users who are not forwarding files to WildFire for analysis. You can add the file exception details directly to the exception list or by specifying a file from the threat logs.If your WildFire Analysis security profile is configured to forward the filetypes analyzed using WildFire inline ML, false-positives are automatically corrected as they are received. If you continue to see ml-virus alerts for files that have been classified as benign by WildFire Analysis, please contact Palo Alto Networks Support.
- Add file exceptions directly to the exception list.
- SelectObjects > Security Profiles > Antivirus.
- Select an Antivirus profile for which you want to exclude specific files and then selectWildFire Inline ML.
- Add the hash, filename, and description of the file that you want to exclude from enforcement.
- ClickOKto save the Antivirus profile and thenCommityour updates.
- Add file exceptions from threat logs entries.
- SelectMonitor > Logs > Threatand filter the logs for theml-virusthreat type. Select a threat log for a file that you wish to create a file exception for.
