This article describes how to disconnect admin sessions logged in through web or ssh on the Palo Alto Networks firewall.
 

Step 1. Check the connected admin sessions.

show admins

[email protected]> show admins

  Admin                           From   Client Session-start   Idle-for    Session-expiry
----------------------------------------------------------------------
  admin                    192.168.1.7      Web 11/15 12:13:10  00:01:56s  12/15 12:13:10
  admin2                     192.168.1.8      Web 11/15 12:12:28  00:02:38s  12/15 12:12:28
  admin                    192.168.1.7      Web 11/15 12:12:16  00:02:50s  12/15 12:12:16
  admin2                     192.168.1.8      Web 11/15 12:13:27  00:01:39s  12/15 12:13:27
* admin                    192.168.1.7      CLI 11/15 12:13:42  00:00:00s  12/15 12:13:42
  admin                    192.168.1.7      Web 11/15 12:12:50  00:02:16s  12/15 12:12:50

Step 2. Kill an admin session.

delete admin-sessions username admin2

[email protected]> delete admin-sessions username admin2

admin2 administrative session deleted

NOTE:
delete admin-sessions’ will be deleting all admin sessions.

There is no way to terminate the admin sessions from the GUI.
