Add Standalone WildFire Appliances to Manage with Panorama
You can manage up to 200 WildFire® appliances with a Panorama® M-Series or virtual appliance. The WildFire 200-appliance limit is a combined total of standalone appliances and WildFire appliance cluster nodes (if you also Configure a Cluster and Add Nodes on Panorama).
Ensure that your Panorama server is running PAN-OS® 8.1.0 or a later PAN-OS version, and that any WildFire appliance you add to your Panorama management server is also running PAN-OS 8.1.0 or a later release.
A device registration authentication key is used to securely authenticate and connect the Panorama management server and the WildFire appliance on first connect. To configure the device registration authentication key, specify the key lifetime and the number of times you can use the authentication key to onboard new WildFire appliances. Additionally, you can specify one or more WildFire appliance serial numbers for which the authentication key is valid.
The authentication key expires 90 days after the key lifetime expires. After 90 days, you are prompted to re-certify the authentication key to maintain its validity. If you do not re-certify, then the authentication key becomes invalid. A system log is generated each time a WildFire appliance uses the Panorama-generated authentication key. The WildFire appliance uses the authentication key to authenticate Panorama when it delivers the device certificate that is used for all subsequent communications.
- Using the local CLI, verify that each WildFire appliance that you want to manage on a Panorama management server is running PAN-OS 8.1.0 or a later release.admin@qa16>show system info | match versionsw-version: 8.0.1-c45 wf-content-version: 702-283 logdb-version: 8.0.15

- On the local CLI of each WildFire appliance the Panorama server will manage, configure the IP address of the Panorama server and add the device registration authentication key.Before you register standalone WildFire appliances to a Panorama appliance, you must first configure the Panorama IP address or FQDN and add the device registration authentication key on each WildFire appliance. This enables each WildFire appliance to securely connect to the Panorama appliance that manages the WildFire appliance. The device registration authentication key is used only for the initial connection to the Panorama server.
- Configure the IP address or FQDN of the management interface for the primary Panorama server.admin@WF-500#set deviceconfig system panorama-server <ip-address | FQDN>
- If you use a backup Panorama appliance for high availability (recommended), configure the IP address or FQDN of the management interface for the backup Panorama server:admin@WF-500#set deviceconfig system panorama-server-2 <ip-address | FQDN>
