Time Based Rules

Hi team,

I have a situation like am able to see lots of time based rules created in the firewall , in the overview screen am able to view 20 time based  rules , due to high volume of rules am not able to scroll it and find it , I tired filtering it , but I could not do it , also I don't have  any 3rd part tools to do the same, as of now I don't have the CLI access also, could any one let me know how to filter the same and see those rules in the dashboard please?

Thanks in advance

Re: Time Based Rules

Since you mentioned the Overview screen, I assume you are referring to the R77.30 SmartDashboard.

From the Firewall tab...Policy, enter "temp" without the quotes in the search box at the top of the rulebase.  This will show you all rules with a time limit (whether currently expired or not).  Enter "exp" in that same search field to see only currently expired rules.

Strangely enough after a few minutes of poking around in the R80.10 SmartConsole I cannot figure out how to apply the above filters to find rules with time limits.  Best I can come up with is doing a "Where Used" on each individual time-based object to clumsily approximate the same thing.  Anyone know a better way?

Re: Time Based Rules

The "exp" filter will only show something if you have rules that are currently expired.

Re: Time Based Rules

I just searched on the name of the Time object I used (this was in R77.30).

I assume you can do something similar in R80.10 (though I haven't checked yet).

Re: Time Based Rules

Right but what about rules themselves that have an expiration date set from the "Rule Expiration" menu accessed by right-clicking the rule number and not via the Time column?  Had no problem finding these in R77.30 via the "time" and "exp" filters but can't figure out how to do it in R80.10.

Re: Time Based Rules

the "temp" and "expired" rulebase search filters are not available in R80.10. This gap will be closed in our next releases.
