Anyone know of a way to PREVENT duplicate address objects from being created on FortiOS.
Scenario: On a FGT, you create an address with the below:
config firewall address
set subnet 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.255
What i am looking for is a way to prevent another object from being created with the same subnet value, even if it has a different name. Lets say it warns you that an entry already exists.
As far as i know in fortios we do not have option to prevent two names with same value.
Lets wait for peers to confirm
Thanks. Maybe something to log a feature request.
FortiOS does not have the capability of the respective. However, if you have FortiManager in place, you can leverage on FortiManager to find duplicate object and manage the respective accordingly:
