Some times we need to reduce the amount of Objects to be migrated or just for optimization and there is one technique that can help us to reduce objects
Its common when we have used Expedition to migrate a configuration from CISCO or FORTINET to have address objects named as H-X.X.X.X or N-X.X.X.X-XX or even if the name was just an IP Address, but they were created as Address Object and count as Object. There is one function inside Expedition to convert them as IP Address that will be only Used on Rules as IP Address or IP Ranges hard-coded as Source or Destination on Rules. So they will not be used as Address Objects anymore.
This has pros and cons but if our Goal is reduce the amount of Address Objects this can help us.
