Rules Display - GUI
As described in another post, we are trying to develop a process to easily export a list of firewall rules from multiple firewalls. In trying to find a good way to achieve this on a regular basis, I've found some things in the log display that could work better:
- When you add Time Created and/or Time Updated columns, and try to sort by either of them, the triangle indicating which way the sort is going changes, but the sort doesn't change.
- Is there a way to permanently add those columns, so they don't need to be checked every time you go to look at the rules?
- What's the purpose of the rule "#"? The number isn't actually associated with the rules, which took me a while to figure out. Having a "#" in the table implies the number has something to do with the rule on that line. It would be valuable to have an actual rule number, that was consistent no matter how you sorted or filtered. If there's a purpose for this working the way it is, I'd love to know what it is.
- In comparing the GUI with the TSR, does the Rule # in the TSR mean anything? Is it consistent when a new rule is created?
It would be great to have either a script to convert the TSR to csv, or an export like the log screen has.
