Description

An issue has been identified in PAN-OS that prevents old management API keys for local administrator accounts from being invalidated upon password change until the device is rebooted. This issue can create a period of time during which an administrator changes the account password, thus creating a new API key, but the old API key is still valid until device reboot.

Solution(s)
