Panorama > Administrators
Select PanoramaAdministrators to create and manage accounts for Panorama administrators.
If you log in to Panorama as an administrator with a superuser role, you can unlock the accounts of other administrators by clicking the lock icons in the Locked User column. A locked out administrator cannot access Panorama. Panorama locks out administrators who exceed the allowed number of failed successive attempts to access Panorama as defined in the Authentication Profile assigned to their accounts (see Device > Authentication Profile).
To create an administrator account, click Add and configure the settings as described in the following table.
Administrator Account Settings
Enter a login username for the administrator (up to 15 characters). The name is case-sensitive, must be unique, and can contain only letters, numbers, hyphens, and underscores.
Use only client certificate authentication (Web)
Select to use client certificate authentication for web interface access. If you select this option, a username (Name) and Password are not required.
Enter and confirm a case-sensitive password for the administrator (up to 15 characters). To ensure security, Palo Alto Networks recommends that administrators change their passwords periodically using a combination of lowercase letters, uppercase letters, and numbers.
Device Group and Template administrators cannot access PanoramaAdministrators. To change their local password, these administrators click their username (beside Logout at the bottom of the web interface). This also applies to administrators with a custom Panorama role in which access to PanoramaAdministrators is disabled.
You can use password authentication in conjunction with an Authentication Profile (or sequence) or with local database authentication.
Use Public Key Authentication (SSH)
Select to use SSH public key authentication: click Import Key, Browse to select the public key file, and click OK. The Administrator dialog displays the uploaded key in the read-only text area.
Supported key file formats are IETF SECSH and OpenSSH. Supported key algorithms are DSA (1024 bits) and RSA (768 to 4096 bits).
If public key authentication fails, Panorama presents a login and password prompt.
The type selection determines the administrative role options:
(Dynamic administrator type)
Select a predefined role:
(Custom Panorama Admin administrator type)
Select a custom Panorama role (see Panorama > Managed Devices).
Access Domain to Administrator Role
(Device Group and Template Admin administrator type)
For each access domain (up to 25) you want to assign to the administrator, Add an Access Domain from the drop-down (see Panorama > Access Domains) and then click the adjacent Admin Role cell and select a custom Device Group and Template administrator role from the drop-down (see Panorama > Managed Devices). When administrators with access to more than one domain log in to Panorama, an Access Domain drop-down appears in the footer of the web interface. Administrators can select any assigned Access Domain to filter the monitoring and configuration data that Panorama displays. The Access Domain selection also filters the firewalls that the Context drop-down displays.
If you use a RADIUS server to authenticate administrators, you must map administrator roles and access domains to RADIUS VSAs. Because VSA strings support a limited number of characters, if you configure the maximum number of access domain/role pairs (25) for an administrator, the Name values for each access domain and each role must not exceed an average of 9 characters.
Select a Password Profile (see Device > Password Profiles).
