Grouping Countries

L1 Bithead


I've been asked to block certain countries...

- All of Europe except Spain

- All of Asia (except Japan, Australia, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan)

- All of Africa

I figured I could add those countries to a "Denied Countries" group to use in a security policy but I don't see the countries listed when I try to create my address group... they only exist in the Regions section.  Is there any way I can create an address group for the countries?  Is there an easier way to do what I'm trying to do without having to manually go through all of the countries and add individually?  Would be nice if there were predefined Region groups (i.e. Europe, Asia, Africa, etc).

Thanks in advance for your help/advice!

HULK and  hshah are both correct.

There has been a Feature Request submitted for this exact feature. At this time, we are not able to group regions.

An alternative would be to create your own region object, with multiple regions and IP address ranges defined inside, but you might as well go ahead and add them one by one to the rule...
