Install a Device Certificate

Install a device certificate from the firewall.
Your next-generation firewall can leverage cloud services such as Device Telemetry and IoT. To do this, you must install a device certificate to successfully authenticate the firewall with the Palo Alto Networks Customer Support Portal (CSP) to leverage these cloud services. The circumstances under which a device certificate is required will differ from feature to feature, so install a device certificate only if the feature's setup documentation tells you that this needs to be done.
You only need to install a device certificate once. Every feature that uses device certificates will use the certificate installed on your firewall if it already exists.
You can install a device certificate to firewalls that are managed by Panorama. If you want to install a device certificate directly to a single next-generation firewall (that is, you are
