Show all address objects in use in policy



Is there a cli command available to search for and view all address objects in use in a firewall's policy? I have a firewall that has hit its maximum address objects limit and need to remove unused addresses.

you should check out the migration tool (the menu above > tools > migration tool)

It can be used to highlight unused objects and merge policies that are duplicate or overlap

Like @reaper mentioned the Migration tool does a fairly good job at this, you could also use the Global Search to verify that they aren't utilized anywhere within the config, or you could simply try to delete them (if they are used it will not allow you to delete the entry). I simply always attempt to delete them when I'm going through my address objects, I find the other options far more time consuming.
