FQDN Address Groups

I seem to be having an issues with FQDN Address Groups. When I create an FQDN address group via the web interface everything looks as expected but I then cant find it via the API.

The address-objects endpoints have options for ipv4, ipv6, mac and FQDN but the address-groups only have options for ipv4 and ipv6. It would appear that FQDN address groups are not available via the API?

I see that in the ipv4 and ipv6 endpoints I have an option to add FQDN objects but always get a 400 error.

How can I GET/POST/PUT FQDN address groups?


  "address_groups": {
    "ipv4": {
      "name": "FQDN Group API Test",
      "address_object": {
        "fqdn": [
            "name": ""
            "name": ""

    Address Groups become ”mixed” type when an object such as an FQDN object, MAC object, or IPv6 object are added to it. Please try referring to the group as a an IPv6 group instead.

    Moving the the ipv6 endpoint resolved my issue for all methods. Thank you for the quick reply.
