Dynamic Objects
Dynamic objects – Host, Zone, Interface and Gateway are the network objects whose configurations vary from one device to another. Administrator can configure these objects in and map them to individual devices. Administrator can use these objects while creating Firewall rule and various policies.
All of the dynamic objects are created using a similar method - create object and then specify the dynamic object-device mappings.
With dynamic objects, configuration of common objects like mail server, radius servers becomes easy as they need to be configured only once and then can be mapped.
