Persistent object search menu

Object search can be done using a persistent search menu which is available when viewing policies, and the search extends to all object types.

To use the persistent search menu:
  1. Go to Policy & Objects > Policy Packages and select a policy.
  2. In the policy table, users can click the double arrow icon () to open the Object Search panel, and search for objects.
    You can also create or edit existing objects from the Object Search panel.
  3. From the search results, you can see which objects are configurable to which policy fields.
  4. You can assign objects from the search panel to a policy by dragging and dropping the object into the corresponding column. FortiManager only supports the drag-and-drop object feature when the object is placed in the column of the came category.
