Changing name on a gateway is not allowed
I want to change the name of a WAN gateway.
When editing the name field in the dialog, on save i get
"Changing name on a gateway is not allowed".
why is the name field being editable at all then or what is so more complicated with renaming instead of deleting ?
please fix renaming the gatway or provide information on how to do that without the gui.

- Priority changed from Normal to Very Low
- Target version deleted (
The gateway is referenced by name throughout the configuration in places like firewall rules for policy routing, routes, gateway groups, etc. Because of the way it is referenced, changing its name is non-trivial. The field could be made static/read only though.

ok. i`m curious why is it so more complex to do besides renaming other things like Aliasses etc...
what can i do otherwise? what is the procedure to rename it in a safe way ?
can i edit config.xml?
how can i make sure that it get`s properly synced afterwards?
