Automatic update of custom objects

Automatic update of custom objects is available after upgrading ADOM 6.0 to 6.2.

If an administrator has defined a custom device or a custom device group in a version 6.0 ADOM, and uses them in a firewall policy package, upgrading to a version 6.2 ADOM should automatically convert them into the new MAC address objects or address group.

Case 1

6.0 ADOM that contains a Custom Device is moved to MAC-based firewall address and keep them in the same policy after ADOM is upgraded to v6.2.

Case 2

6.0 ADOM that contains a Custom Device Group will be converted into Firewall Address Group if only a custom-device is included in the device group after ADOM is upgraded to v6.2.

Case 3

6.0 ADOM that contains a Custom Device Group will be removed if the device group contains any pre-defined device-type or device-category after ADOM upgraded to v6.2.

Case 4

If a firewall policy uses the ALL firewall address and custom devices, after ADOM is upgraded to v6.2, ALL address will be removed and custom devices are retained in firewall policy.

Case 5

If firewall policy does not contain ALL firewall address, only custom devices and other defined address, both firewall address and custom devices are retained in firewall policy after ADOM is upgraded to v6.2.

Case 6

If firewall policy is as set pre-defined custom-device-group which includes pre-defined device-type/category, the firewall policy will be disabled after ADOM is upgraded to v6.2.
