Creating object configurations

You can create new object configurations before including them in policy packages. Alternatively, you can also create policy packages using existing object configurations.

Note

Global objects created on FortiGate devices are not supported by FortiManager.

Global objects can instead be configured in FortiManager ADOMs as policy objects and installed to managed FortiGate devices as a VDOM config (not a global level config).

To create object configurations in Global Database:
  1. Change the ADOM to Global Database.
  2. Click Object Configurations. The Object Configuration pane shows the following object categories.
  3. Click Create New to create new objects in each category.
