What's an example of where-used indirectly?

When using the "where-used" API call, all the results (so far) have come back as "used-directly". What would be an example of a result that would come back as used-indirectly?

Thank you,

Re: What's an example of where-used indirectly?

Check Point - Management API reference 

where-used name "Host 1" indirect true details-level "uid" indirect-max-depth 5 --format json  • "--format json" is optional. By default the output is presented in plain text.

Output

{   "used-directly" : {     "total" : 2,     "objects" : [ "f5c7640d-92eb-4c91-b7ad-c9c972ec31d6" ],     "threat-prevention-rules" : [ ],     "nat-rules" : [ ],     "access-control-rules" : [ {      "rule" : "6c4fc003-4a45-4a09-9438-b76745c55674",       "position" : "2",      "owner" : "f799c262-0942-4cb7-a7da-c5daed16b27b",       "policy" : "21bef0f6-026d-4730-80b2-b8159a0bc11a",       "layer" : "f799c262-0942-4cb7-a7da-c5daed16b27b",       "layer-position" : 0,       "package" : "68451b5c-c330-4b5c-a9f4-4c9ff97b7b2d"     } ]   },   "used-indirectly" : {     "total" : 6,     "objects" : [ "7a42b6fa-c0ab-4646-9f38-e6a75a2d1f65", "a991a0db-cf5b-4228-ab7f-3093f8018fae", "47f15ffc-a7ba-4a80-a58d-5a992c649c8e", "a652839f-2232-4db9-a444-b2f910fb0642", "d2ddc3ef-29bc-469b-ab6c-c469a778d31f" ],     "threat-prevention-rules" : [ ],    "nat-rules" : [ {      "rule" : "774bafc8-38d9-4580-817e-14b0da4e605e",       "position" : "1",      "owner" : "20fd80bf-57f3-4c2b-8fa1-916f87375941",       "policy" : "ed31f1cb-3f02-4bec-b29f-3814cc4f0e07",       "package" : "68451b5c-c330-4b5c-a9f4-4c9ff97b7b2d"     } ],     "access-control-rules" : [ ]   } }

You can see this scenario:

"Web Server" is part of Group "aaaa"

Group "aaaa" is part of group "bbbb"

indirect of "Web Server" is "bbbb"

direct

indirect
