Manually Upload Files to the WildFire Portal

All Palo Alto Networks customers with a support account can use the Palo Alto Networks WildFire portal to manually submit up to five samples a day for WildFire analysis. If you have a WildFire subscription, you can manually submit samples to the portal as part of your 1000 sample uploads daily limit; however, keep in mind that the 1000 sample daily limit also includes WildFire API submissions.
