Easy Way to create address range for 

I need to create an object network for the list of ranges 

Is there an easy way to create this list ? My firewall version is R77.30

You can use the Check Point Management API's to accomplish this. 
I have updated some scripts that accomplish this HERE. They are written in Python and will create the Network objects for the AWS public IP nets.
You can find Powershell functions here as well - I have worked on one of those as well but am still refining the code.

Hope this helps !

His firewall version is R77.30, so there's no API's.

The most easy way that I can think of is by using Confwiz or sometimes called CPConfWiz.

Simply create a test ip range, export your SmartCenter (SMC) config via Confwiz, mind the XML syntax for your test ip range, open the in your preferred text editor, adjust the syntax via Search&Replace to match the required XML syntax, import the XML containing all your required ranges back into your SMC via Confwiz.

Note: The Confwiz tool was recently changed to be available for Check Point internal staff only. Therefore create a service request or ask your Check Point support partner.. or google it.

His management is R80.10. and the API works on management not on the Gateway.

Policy then on push sends to R77.30 Gateway the objects and policy formatted for R77.30.

Best to have as recent Jumbo as possible.

I understand he opened his request in this R80.10 Management Thread. I was just under the Impression that he is using R77.30 on his Management as well, because he wrote that his firewall version (Gateway + Management) is R77.30. There is no R77.30 Management Thread here where he could have posted his question otherwise.

Rather than make assumptions, let's ask Paulo Aun‌ what version of management he's using.

The mechanics of the answer are different for R77.30 and R80.10 management, but it boils down to: write a script that parses the .json from Amazon and outputs commands either to dbedit (R77.30) or the API (R80.10).

dbedit is documented here: Command Line Interface R77 

Confwiz is another way to achieve the same result. 

There are several example scripts for R80.x in the Developers (Code Hub)‌ section.

For R80 I was able to cook a test PowerShell script:
