In R77.30 management, when you added a group to a group, there was a question if to add the group as a whole or the members of the group. In R80.10, always the whole group is added.
How can I add the members of one group to another group in R80.10?
Can you please elaborate in which cases would you prefer to duplicate the group's members into the rule instead of reusing the group object? Is this an action that you often do?
In 90% of the cases, I wand to add a group to another group, but there are 10% of the cases where I want to add the members.
A use case is when you want to make sure that all members of one group are certainly contained in an other group - then you just add the members of the one group to the other.
In general, I add the members and not the group when I want to modify the list of the members in the new group independently of the members of the old group where they are copied from.
will the Clone option be good for this 10% case?
can you please elaborate here?
what I'm offering is instead of creating a new group and adding the other group's members there, simply right-click the other group, choose "clone", give it a new name, and it will have the other group's members.
Yes, then I have a copy of an existing group. Simply. But what if I want to extend an existing group with the members of another group? This is a valid operation that I have come across often enough in the many many years that I manage firewalls. Still need more elaboration?
Christian Riede I would like to contact you privately about this.
I think he want to merge 3 group into one group for example. Meybe you can use the cli / api for that
