wildcard fqdn for destination in security policy. FQDN for  abc*.def.com

Team , I have a question about something that I guess is not possible to configure but will like to confirm if possible . My client want to allow  Internal NW to FQDN abc1.def.com port HTTPS , this is normal and I have a few of this rules already implemented. Now the question is , is possible to create a FQDN for  abc*.def.com?, a wildcard FQDN like abc*.edf.com could be created, it would cover all the individually numbered abc destinations or I will have to create individuals FQDNs for each abc*. . Thanks in advance

If I remember it right, then the asterisk can only be used between dots, between start and dot, and between dot and end.

To achieve what you plan, you need to use ^ (which requires PAN-OS 9.1 or higher) --> abc^.def.com/

Hi JoergSchuetter

I tested this on 9.1 abc^.def.com ,  The value on this field is invalid , Cant use ^ on the FQDN. Any other suggestion. Thanks 

My bad, I thought you were talking about a fqdn within a URL object.

I was wondering if instead of creating 5 different FQDN objects abc1.def.com, abc2.def.com, abc3.def.com, abc4.def.com, abc5.def.com, I could create one to cover all 5 ,  abc*.def.com. So far I guess is not possible.
