This happened here in this constellation:
Adom FortiOS v7
when you create a vip in policy manager you see it in the vip section in the objects menue but it does not appear in the selection when you edit or create a policy and they to use it as destination.
The same does work in an adom which is FortiOS v6.4 on the same FMG.
VIPs also do work in FMG Policy Manager in a v7 adom when you create them on the FGT and then re-import the configuration from the FGT into FMG. This creates a new policy package in which you can see and use the VIP in Policies.
This also is reproducable.
TAC confirmed to me this is a Bug and gave it Bug ID #0869291.
TAC also confirmed to me that this was reported to be solved in prior versions butt seems to have reappeared either in 7.0 (or even 7.x?) adoms or FMG 7.0.5.
Just thought I let the community know...maybe someone else runs into that issue...
