An address object can group one or more IP addresses
in one or more policy rules, filters, or other firewall functions.
Create an address object on the firewall to group IP
addresses or to specify an FQDN, and then reference the address
object in a firewall policy rule, filter, or other function to avoid
having to individually specify multiple IP addresses in the rule,
filter, or other function.
Furthermore, you can reference the same address object in multiple
policy rules, filters, or other functions without needing to specify
the same individual addresses in each use. For example, you can
create an address object that specifies an IPv4 address range and
then reference the address object in a Security policy rule, a NAT
policy rule, and a custom report log filter.
