Compare Changes in Panorama Configurations

To compare configuration changes on Panorama, you can select any two sets of configuration files: the candidate configuration, the running configuration, or any other configuration version that has been previously saved or committed on Panorama. The side-by-side comparison enables you to:
  • Preview the configuration changes before committing them to Panorama. You can, for example, preview the changes between the candidate configuration and the running configuration. As a best practice, select the older version on the left pane and the newer version on the right pane, to easily compare and identify modifications.
  • Perform a
    configuration audit
    to review and compare the changes between two sets of configuration files.
  • Compare changes in Panorama configurations.
