Verify Access Control Policy - desire feature?

Hi,

we just recognized following:

Give is a SmartCenter with multiple policies sets. Each policy has a certain firewall assigned. One of the policy set is attached to a 'test firewall' gateway, and only for test purposes. 

Running now the verifier on the SmartCenter, it checks *all* security policies, not only the active one (highlighted tab). And if there is something wrong with the 'test policy set', you are not able to verify/push one of the other policies.

Is this a desired feature or a bug?

I was originally under the impression that the policies are independent. At least, you do not use the same objects. 

 

Regards,

 

Security Management Server R80.20 Jumbo Take 10

In R80.20, at least, you have to choose the policy you wish to verify.

How are you verifying policy?

How do you know it's verifying multiple policies and not the one you specified?

Re: Verify Access Control Policy - desire feature?

hi,

good point.

Verification has been done on one of the policies. 

The verification stopped with errors. However, the test policy had a broken cluster member. (misconfiguration on the test gateway)

You wrote: if there is something wrong with the 'test policy set', you are not able to verify/push one of the other policies.

Can you provide more details and screenshots ? Never have encountered such an issue...

hi,

sorry, can't really share a screenshot (customer system)

And it we recognized this 2 times. Obviously when someone 'played' in the test policy/test-gw.

So, meanwhile I assume. There should be no impact between the poliy sets when you are not using the same objects.

Thanks

Regards

You can obfuscate / blacken any screenshot to hide customer details !

Might be worth a TAC case instead as this doesn't seem like expected behavior.
