Fortinet firewall create rule to allow multiple internal IP's to go out using same external IP

We have a cloud based firewall provided by our MPLS provider. They recently moved from Cisco to Fortinet. We are given access through a web dashboard.

I knew how to to this with the cisco but not the fortinet. I'm trying to create a rule/policy where i can group a few internal IP's together where they go out and use the same external static IP.

1. create an object for each internal IP (for example host_192.168.1.101, host_192.168.1.102, etc.)

2. create a group and insert the objects created into step 1

3. create a NAT rule for that group to go to internet with the chosen public IP

hope this helps

I'm with you up until step 3. For me it only allows me to put a single IP with no choice to add the group i created with the 3 internal IP's.

i do get the option to create a VIP group, but where it says add members, its blank and even if i search for the group name i created it says nothing to display.

Thanks for the help. Turns out they have a bug in the portal dashboard that I access and I can't delete certain things even though i am supposed to. I needed to delete all references to the current NAT and then add the IPs and groups like you said and make a new NAT with reference to the ippool of the external IP.
