Description

In FortiOS version 5.2 Traffic Shaping was configured over firewall policy. By default if traffic shaping wanted to be applied, It was just a matter of create a shaper and point it out on policy.

Now on 5.4 - 5.6 FortiOS versions there is no such option, It has to be configured using CLI every time you want to configure inside the policy.
