If you want to block a large list of addresses to access your firewall, but don't want to create the address object one by one, we can do it by directly adjusting the configuration.


Solution:
a. Download the startup-config.conf and open the .conf file with txt notebook
b. Find the configuration of address-object and object-group address
c. Add the IP address in this format:
address-object <object_address1> x.x.x.x
address-object <object_address2> y.y.y.y

d. Create an address group including the address objects.
object-group address <address_group_object_name>
address-object address name1
address-object address name2

e. Apply the address group object to the blocked security policy
