Naming IPSEC Interfaces in Fortimanager

Hi All,


is it possible to customise the name of IPSEC interfaces created with FMG central VPN management? I'm using FMG 5.4.3 and all 5.4.5 fortigate firewalls at present (not ready for 5.6 yet).


We do BGP routing from a site back to one or more datacentres over multiple links, so i need to be able to name my tunnels in a reasonable manner, such as AU-DCA-1, AU-DCA-2 and so on


FMG seems to decide to call them DCA1_1 and DCA2_2 or some variation


Can this be done with Dynamic interfaces or something similar?


Any suggestions appreciated!
