2.1. When adding via REST API a rule that already exists with the same name, the new rule's data is being appended to the existing rule (the source, destination etc. of the new rule is added to the existing one in the existing rule). We believe that the expected behavior should be to return an error that this rule already exists.
2.2. It's possible to create 2 different address objects or service objects with the same name but with different types (netmask, range etc...) via the REST API.
Again, we believe that the expected behavior is to return an error that an object with this name already exists.
