Check Point SmartConsole Drag and Drop

May 29, 2017 | Filed Under: Check PointOperations


At some point in the past, Check Point allowed us to click an object and drag it into a group object.  This can be very useful, especially with discontiguous ip ranges and/or hostnames.  Sometimes you have a group object or objects that need to be updated multiple times a week with newly created objects.  Regardless, here is a way to use metadata along with the drag and drop feature to get things done faster.


  1. Tag the newly created object with a unique item
    1. The comment field is your friend
    2. Request/Ticket/Case/CRM # is unique
    3. Date and username may be unique
    4. Your vocabulary word of the day.  Mine is pedantry 🙂
  2. Ensure you can view the objects list
    1. View => Objects List
    2. Click the ^ to expand
  3. Find your target group by expanding the objects tree on the left
  4. Search for your unique metadata tag
  5. Click and drop your objects to the group
