The VLAN configuration page is displayed, select the physical port of the firewall 1 then the area 2 , enter the VLAN ID 3 and configure its IP addressing 4> > and click on the button Save 5 .

The VLAN is added to the firewall.

Even if the VLAN is added in LAN area, it is necessary to put a rule that will allow the traffic. If you do not want any particular filtering between LAN zones, I advise you to set up a LAN TO LAN ZONE rule as below.
