Adding MAC-based addresses to devices

Assets detected by device detection appear in the User & Device > Device Inventory list. You can manage policies around devices by adding a new device object (MAC-based address) to a device. Once you add the MAC-based address, the device can be used in address groups or directly in policies.

To add a MAC-based address to a device:
  1. Go to User & Device > Device Inventory.
  2. Right-click a device and select Create Firewall Address > MAC Address.

  3. In the New Address pane, enter an address name.

  4. Click OK. The MAC address icon is now displayed in the Address column for the device.
