About the Addresses Page

To access this page, select Shared Services > Objects > Addresses.

An address specifies an IP address or a hostname. You can create addresses that you can use across all policies. Addresses are used in firewall and NAT services and apply to the corresponding policies. You can also resolve an IP address to the corresponding hostname.

Juniper Security Director Cloud manages its address book at the global level, assigning objects to devices that are required to create policies. An address book is a collection of addresses and address groups. If the device is capable of using a global address book, Juniper Security Director Cloud pushes address objects used in the policies to the global address book of the device.

Use this page to create, edit, clone, and delete addresses and address groups, and manage addresses. Addresses and address groups are used in firewall and NAT services. After you create an address, you can combine it with other addresses to form an address group. Address groups are useful when you want to apply the same policy to multiple services.
