Rename/Comment Physical Interface objects
It should be allowed to change the name of Physical Interface objects from default PORTx name to custom one.
Also, comment attribute/field should be added for additional description (like it was available in UTM9).
The ability to rename interface objects will be delivered in version 18 of SFOS. We will not be adding comments at this time.
If comment/description field is important to you, support this item, which is specifically about providing comments fields more generally across the board: https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/330219-xg-firewall/suggestions/38328700-more-objects-should-have-note-fields

In some sub menus the XG shows both port x - ip address.... the rename of all objects is a must!
When Sophos promotes there products with "simple web interface" and so on, Port1 is NOT simple for the admin (okay it is very simple for the programer) ;-)

yes, it must be like in UTM9

Agreed. I stopped even toying with the idea of implementing the XG firewall in our network until this happens. We have 32 external addresses, and having them show up as PORT1:31 is less than helpful.
This is not a "nice to have", in my opinion this is a necessity. There is no easy way to keep track of your interfaces if you can't rename them. C'mon Sophos, this shouldn't even have to be a request...
I agree you should be able to rename your physical interfaces.
Needed along with changes to the default emial message about the external network being restored.
