This is the first How to we write, hope you can find useful this new kind of Documents.

From your project: We have a Dashboard that tells you if there is any duplicated Rule by Name (in Security, Nat, Application Override)

In this example we have a duplicated rule by name under the Security Policies.

How can I retrieve all the Duplicated Rules by Name?

Under your project, go to the Security Rules and span the right Panel where the Policy Filters are. when the Panel is expanded go at the bottom and click on Consolidation. Select the checkbox for "Rule Name" and then "Analyze and Filter"

This will show you the cases that are based on a duplicated Rule Name how many times are duplicated

How Can I fix it? That's easy, you can edit the Rule and Rename it or use the context menu clicking with your right button in your mouse over one rule to see it and then you can select "Fix Duplicated Names"

This will automatically change the name from "Rule 1" in the first rule to "Rule 1_1"

If the rule names are like "Rule XX" and you have duplicated its better to remove all the rule names from the same context menu but selecting "Remove" and after that "Rename to Rule XX".
