On Panorama, if a policy rule or object that you will move or clone from a device group has references to objects that are not available in the target device group ( Destination), you must move or clone the referenced objects and the referencing rule or object in the same operation. In a Device Group Hierarchy, remember that referenced objects might be available through inheritance. For example, shared objects are available in all device groups. You can perform a global find to check for references. If you move or clone an overridden object, be sure that overrides are enabled for that object in the parent device group of the Destination (see Create Objects for Use in Shared or Device Group Policy).
Move or Clone a Policy Rule or Object to a Device Group
Log in to Panorama and select the rulebase (for example, Policy > Security > Pre Rules) or object type (for example, Objects > Addresses).
Select the Device Group and select one or more rules or objects.
Perform one of the following steps: ( Rules only ) Move > Move to other device group ( Objects only ) Move ( Rules or objects ) Clone
In the Destination drop-down, select the new device group or Shared. The default is the Device Group selected in Step 2.
( Rules only ) Select the Rule order: Move top (default)—The rule will come before all other rules. Move bottom —The rule will come after all other rules. Before rule —In the adjacent drop-down, select the rule that comes after the Selected Rules. After rule —In the adjacent drop-down, select the rule that comes before the Selected Rules.
The Error out on first detected error in validation check box is selected by default, which means Panorama will display the first error it finds and stop checking for more errors. For example, an error occurs if the Destination device group doesn't have an object that is referenced in the rule you are moving. When you move or clone many items at once, selecting this check box can simplify troubleshooting. If you clear the check box, Panorama will find all the errors before displaying them. Regardless of this setting, Panorama won’t move or clone anything until you fix all the errors for all the selected items.
Click OK to start the error validation. If Panorama finds errors, fix them and retry the move or clone operation. If Panorama doesn't find errors, it performs the operation.
