dynamic block lists / access groups with FQDN support

Currently we have this security policy to allow FTP access. A user who needs FTP access must be part of a special AD group and the FTP server must be part of an address group.

The problem is that there are a lot of changes and the responsible person does not have access to the firewall. This should not be changed.

So my idea was to use dynamic block lists or dynamic address groups. But I think they support only IPs. Is there a possibility to use FQDN? If not can you tell me another alternative how to reach my goal?

Re: dynamic block lists / access groups with FQDN support

Hi

if changing the security policy each time is not an option you could either try to set up a dynamic address group which you can alter by using API calls:

How to Add an IP Address to a Dynamic Address Group using API

or set up a domain on your internal DNS server where you can change/add the IP addresses as needed (each fqdn object can contain up to 10 ip addresses)

the dynamic address group will probably be the best solution
