Ability to Reboot Single Interface from WSM


We have a site with multiple WAN connections, one failed yesterday and at 9am, the WAN provider reached out to ask us to resync the interface, but the only way to do this is to reboot the whole Firebox.
I thought about trying to disable the interface, this won't work, as it's tied into SD-WAN + VPN configuration that will all need to be undone to disable the interface.

A simple right click restart interface, same as the Rekey BOVPN tunnels would be great.

+Could be a great tool for testing SD-WAN also, because it'll drop the connection and you can test the failover without having to actually pull the cable out.

    Why can't the WAN provider reset their connection to the firewall?
    Seems like they want to suggest that the problem isn't theirs.

    For most of WatchGuard's firewalls, setting the interface to disabled, saving, and then back to what it was set to before will up/down the interface.

    Idk what the use for this would be as you can disable the interface the way James Carson said...

    If you have management server you can make the change and then roll back after you confirm it is off...
