FortiView Top Source and Top Destination Firewall Objects monitors

The FortiView Source Firewall Objects and FortiView Destination Firewall Objects monitors leverage UUID to resolve firewall object address names for improved usability.


To have a historical Firewall Objects-based view, address objects' UUIDs need to be logged.

To enable address object UUID logging in the CLI:

config system global

set log-uuid-address enable
