Create a scheduled configuration push to managed firewalls
Often as you accumulate configuration
changes on Panorama, you must wait until your off-business hours
change management window to push configuration changes to reduce
the risk of outages during business hours. To reduce the operational
overhead of pushing configuration changes to managed firewalls,
PANOS 10.1.0 allows you to create a scheduled configuration push
to automatically push changes to your managed firewalls on a specified
date and time. You can configure a scheduled configuration push
to either occur once or to push on a regularly occurring schedule. This
allows you to effectively push configurations made by multiple administrators to
multiple firewalls without the need for involvement of any administrator.
create a scheduled configuration push to managed firewalls, you
set the schedule parameters of when and how frequently a push occurs
and to which managed firewalls to push to. For a Panorama in a high
availability (HA) configuration, the scheduled configuration push
is synchronized across the HA peers.
If you create multiple
scheduled configuration pushes, you must create them at a minimum
of a 15 minute interval to allow for the Panorama management server to
validate the configuration. Scheduled configuration pushes that
are within 15 minutes of each other may fail due to Panorama being
unable to validate the first scheduled configuration push changes.
a successful scheduled configuration push occurs, you can view the
scheduled configuration push execution history to understand when
the last push for a specific schedule occurred, and how many managed
firewalls were impacted. From the total number of impacted managed
firewalls, you can view how many configuration pushes to managed
firewalls were successful and how many failed. Of the failed pushes,
you can view the total number of managed firewalls with automatically reverted
configurations due to a configurations that interrupted the connection between
the managed firewall and Panorama.
In the Push Scope Selection, select one or more device
groups, templates, or template stacks.
You must select at least one device group, template, or
template stack to successfully schedule a configuration push. All
managed firewalls associated with the selected device groups, templates,
or template stacks are included in the scheduled configuration push.

Up to 64 templates are supported
for a single scheduled configuration push.
