Duplicated objects

Hi, Is there a way for me to check duplicated, triplicated, etc. objects, but not for name but its configuration in some way? For example I have this:

The network is twice but with different names, I would like to know if I can list all the objects that have the same parameters but different name, Thanks.

Manually you can look this in object explorer. Put the IP-address or network in the Search-field and it will show all the objects with this IP. This is of course not very useful if you have a lot of objects you want to check. 

Check Point Professional Services has a tool to run a report of your policy and object database (including duplicate objects). You can also create an API script to look for the duplicate objects.

In case you are still using R77.30, it's just a mouse-click away:

Search > Network Objects > Duplicates


There is also a python script available, which comes with the default example scripts for the python module regarding the management API:

cp_mgmt_api_python_sdk/find_duplicate_ip at master · CheckPointSW/cp_mgmt_api_python_sdk · GitHub 

But note that this one just lists only duplicate IP addresses and does not compare other parameters. But it's a starting point which could be advanced to also compare other parameters like tags etc.
