Removing an Object and All Dependencies


I am doing some firewall cleanup on our panorama.  We have quite a few devices and I am forced to go through each device group to verify if something exsists locally or shared.  Is there any way through the CLI or Panorama to remove an item and all dependencies?  Here is the current process:

Enter search term to find the item

Click through each of the 20 device groups to find the item. 

Press delete to find dependencies

Navigate to dependenciesand delete

Back to group and remove item

Search through remaining device groups for other related items


I can clarify if you have any questions, thank you so much for your help.

This is the specific error I would like to address:

   1- Failed to delete Address - CLEANED.

  ° CLEANED cannot be deleted because of references from:

L5 Sessionator

You would not be able to delete an address object if its referenced in an address group or a policy.

Attempt to delete a referenced object would show up a dialogue box describing its references in the config.
