Enable AutoFocus Threat Intelligence

Activate the AutoFocus license, and enable the firewall to communicate with AutoFocus. Once you’re set up, you’ll be able to view the AutoFocus Intelligence Summary for a log or ACC artifact, to assess its pervasiveness in your network and any associated threats.
  1. Verify that the AutoFocus license is activated on the firewall.
    1. Select DeviceLicenses to verify that the AutoFocus Device License is installed and valid (check the expiration date).
    2. If the firewall doesn’t show the license, Activate Subscription Licenses.
  2. Connect the firewall to AutoFocus.
    1. Select DeviceSetupManagement and edit the AutoFocus settings.
    2. Enter the AutoFocus URL:
      https://autofocus.paloaltonetworks.com:10443
    3. Use the Query Timeout field to set the duration of time for the firewall to attempt to query AutoFocus for threat intelligence data. If the AutoFocus portal does not respond before the end of the specified period, the firewall closes the connection.
      As a best practice, set the query timeout to the default value of 15 seconds. AutoFocus queries are optimized to complete within this duration.
    4. Select Enabled to allow the firewall to connect to AutoFocus.
    5. Click OK.
    6. Commit your changes to retain the AutoFocus settings upon reboot.
  3. Connect AutoFocus to the firewall.
    1. Log in to the AutoFocus portal: https://autofocus.paloaltonetworks.com
    2. Select Settings.
    3. Add new remote systems.
    4. Enter a descriptive Name to identify the firewall.
    5. Select PanOS as the System Type.
    6. Enter the firewall IP Address.
    7. Click Save changes to add the remote system.
    8. Click Save changes again on the Settings page to ensure the firewall is successfully added.
  4. Test the connection between the firewall and AutoFocus.
    1. On the firewall, select MonitorLogsTraffic.
    2. Verify that you can Assess Firewall Artifacts with AutoFocus.
