Issue/Introduction

The ProxySG appliance automatically adds a health check object when you add forwarding hosts.

When you add or edit health check objects in Configuration > Health Checks > General, the use of parentheses and square brackets in a forwarding host's name prevents the console from displaying the health check. There is no error message.
