API: install-on does not accept group targets

Hi,

I have a customer who's moving from R77 to R80 and due to various reasons we have had to import objects and rules via mgmt_cli. 

However the API does not permit a group of firewalls as an install-on target; I had to create a dummy gateway object as a placeholder and then replace a number of rules with the group (which we had successfully imported via API).

Would it be possible to make this feature work in next API?

 

Thanks

Jamie

Re: API: install-on does not accept group targets

Just to clarify, are you talking about as the install-on target for a rule?

Hi PhoneBoy,

 

Yes, add rule ... install-on.1

It probably simplifies the backend validation a bit to have the API call only take gateway objects.
With a group, you'd have to validate that the group only contains gateways to be considered valid.
In any case, this is definitely an RFE. @Amiad_Stern 

Curious: are you using the Install On field in all the rules, some, or?
