Show where object is in use on attempted deletion
While deleting an object which is in use anywhere, it just gives an error that object is in use. hence the administrator needs to find that object in the entire firewall configuration.
it is more helpful and user-friendly if we could have a click like option (same as policy number in firewall log viewer) where one can click and redirect to the location where it is used.
Such function should be uniform for all kind of object created regardless of it is the host, or service or any other.
This was great in SG, don't take away good features!

Andrew 491, I gave you my vote, however I already opened the same feature request some time ago:

When deleting an interface I get this warning:
Deleting an interface will delete one or more of its dependent configurations, including:
1. Interface-Zone binding
2. DHCP server or relay
3. Interface-based firewall rules
4. ARP - NDP static and proxy
5. Virtual hosts and respective firewall rules
6. Interface-based hosts and respective host groups
7. Routes - unicast and multicast
8. Interface-based PPPoE configurations
9. Gateway configurations
10. VPN configurations
11. Router advertisement
12. HTTP Based Policies
Are you sure you want to delete the selected interface(s)?
The problem is that it doesn't provide a way to view what those dependent options are. Could you please show a list of these objects with links to them?
