The current PAN-OS GUI makes adding objects and zones on the fly very easy while building policies.
Unfortunately this sometimes casues unwanted side effects:
As an example, when building a security policy including the zone "Admin" I started typing "admin" in the zone add field as a search and pressed enter. Instead of choosing the already-built "Admin" zone, this caused a new zone "admin" to be created with no associated type, interfaces, etc., which obviously caused commit errors.
The on-the-fly addition is handy in some cases, but I would like to be able to toggle this function on and off. Once the majority of the objects and zones are built I would prefer the GUI to only pick existing objects from the drop-down unless I explicitly click the "+" add button.
