There is now a beta you can request to go onto via support that enables firewall objects for use in ACLs. Objects can contain groups of other objects.
For some people this will make their firewall rules much simpler.
Wow, I didn't realise that could you not do that before! We do only use MXs for SD-WAN or public internet access so never needed it, but for a corporate firewall that will make a big difference 🙂
Hah! I was wondering if this was coming along. In Cisco Defense Orchestrator, you can use objects with Meraki L3 firewall, but there I think it's just an overlay.
@PhilipDAth Does one have to be on 15.x or is it available on 14.x? Do you know? Thank you.
I opened a ticket with support and they said that I needed to reach out to my Meraki representative instead. I reached out to her and she said that she doesn't have this kind of access and will need to ask around. It sounds like they are not quite sure how to turn it on yet. I'm pretty excited for this feature. I watched the Q&A section and they said that the feature is in the dashboard and that there isn't a firmware requirement on the MX.
Firewall Objects is not yet Public Beta. It currently an internal Beta. We are currently putting finishing touches to the feature and working on documentation before roll out. The feature will be public beta before or latest January 2020.
