Object Builder Overview

 

You can use the Object Builder workspace in Edge Services Director to create objects to be used by firewall policies, VPNs, and NAT policies. These objects are stored in the Junos Space database. You can reuse these objects with multiple security policies, VPNs, and NAT policies.

You can use the Object Builder workspace to create, modify, clone, and delete the following objects:

  • Addresses and address groups

  • Services and service groups

  • Variables

You cannot delete any of the objects that you created in Object Builder (except Template definition and Templates) if they are already used in a firewall policy, NAT policy, or any other service definition.

Object Builder supports concurrent editing of its objects, with a save as option to save your changes with a different name.

Concurrent editing is supported for the following objects:

  • Addresses and address groups

  • Application signatures

  • Stateful firewall rules

  • Stateful firewall rule sets

  • CGNAT pools

  • CGNAT rule sets

  • CGNAT rules

  • Real server settings

If you attempt to save your changes to an object that has been modified since you began editing, you receive an error message.
