Activate and Launch Prisma SD-WAN

Let us learn to activate and launch Prisma SD-WAN.
Activate and launch the Prisma SD-WAN web interface based on your subscription.
If you purchased your Prisma SD-WAN subscription and ION devices before March 2021, you have a direct link to launch the Prisma SD-WAN application, and now starting September 2021, you can launch Prisma SD-WAN from the Palo Alto Networks Hub. If you have purchased your Prisma SD-WAN subscription and ION devices after March 2021, you can activate and launch Prisma SD-WAN.
  • Launch Prisma SD-WAN
    If you have purchased your Prisma SD-WAN subscription and ION devices before March 2021, you have a direct link to launch the Prisma SD-WAN. Starting September 2021, you will be associated with a Customer Support Portal (CSP) account in the Palo Alto Networks Hub. You can now launch Prisma SD-WAN through the Palo Alto Networks hub also.
    However, you must have the CSP sign-in credentials to sign in to the Palo Alto Networks Hub.
    1. Contact your Sales Engineer for the sign-in credentials for the Customer Support Portal (CSP).
    2. After you obtain the Username and Password, sign in to the hub using the provided credentials.
    3. Click the
      Prisma SD-WAN
      tile to launch the Prisma SD-WAN web interface. There is no activation required.
    4. Read and agree to the End User License Agreement to launch the Prisma SD-WAN web interface.
    • When you sign in to your Customer Support Portal account, click
      Members
      Manage Users
      to edit the user roles of the users from
      Edit User
      .
    • If you have the
      Super User
      role, then you can click
      Members
      Create New User
      to add a new user in the CSP account. We recommend only one
      Super User
      role in the CSP account. With a
      Super User
      role in the CSP account, you have a
      Tenant Super
      role in the Prisma SD-WAN application. You can optionally create a new user in the CSP account as a
      Standard User
      who has view-only permissions in the CSP account. However, the new Standard User created in the CSP account can then be changed to
      IAM Administrator
      ,
      Network Administrator
      ,
      Security Administrator
      , or
      View-only User
      in the Prisma SD-WAN application as per the previously existing user roles for that user in Prisma SD-WAN.
    • The existing users in the Prisma SD-WAN application are not migrated to the CSP account and the existing user roles and privileges continue to remain unchanged. You can create a new user in the CSP account as a
      Standard User
      , who can then launch Prisma SD-WAN from the Hub. A new user created in the CSP account has a corresponding new user created in the Prisma SD-WAN application also. Thus, you may find duplicate user roles in the Prisma SD-WAN application if the existing user roles in Prisma SD-WAN are created by the same name in the CSP account also.
    • The user roles seen in the Prisma SD-WAN application and the CSP account may not map to each other with similar user roles. Thus, any change made to the user role in the Prisma SD-WAN application will not reflect in the CSP account user role for the same user.
    • If you delete a user in the Prisma SD-WAN application, you must manually delete the same user from the CSP account.

      to access the Prisma SD-WAN web interface.

    After activation of the Prisma SD-WAN application, you can manage user roles in the Prisma SD-WAN application. If you have a
    Super User
    role in the
    Customer Support Portal
    , then the first time you access the Prisma SD-WAN application through the Palo Alto Networks hub, you will have the
    Super Administrator
    role in the Prisma SD-WAN application. If you are not assigned a
    Super User
    role in the CSP, you will have a
    View-only User
    role in the Prisma SD-WAN application.
    This role can be changed by another user with Super or IAM privileges to any other role defined in the Prisma SD-WAN application. When you next log in to the Prisma SD-WAN application from the hub, you will have privileges in Prisma SD-WAN as defined by your user role.
