Why should I use an object-group?

Object-groups improve the organization and readability of a firewall running
configuration. A running configuration that is easy to read and modify reduces
the chances for misconfiguration and increases your ability to troubleshoot
issues quickly.

Firewall Manager v2 refers to object-groups as IP groups. You can view, create,
modify, and delete any object-group on your firewall. For more information, see

performs quality checks and contacts you if anything appears to be incorrect.
