Within the networking section of the console users can manage rules related to firewall traffic and NAT by clicking on the actions menu drop down in the widget.
The platform maintains a history of all changes committed and allows users to revert back to a previous checkpoint. Users can also import and export firewall and NAT rules within the console. The exported file type will be a .json file contained within a .zip file.
Network firewall and NAT rule restore point functionality allows users to view and edit each rule configuration prior to re-applying. This is an important part for making restore points very useful for iland Secure Cloud customers that have dynamic environments and are using the firewall object reference features.
An example of how this works is if a user goes to restore an old firewall checkpoint that has an object reference to something that no longer exists, such as a VM, an IP set, or an edge interface, the rule restoration modal will show which rule(s), and what specifically within the rule(s) is no longer valid. This allows the user the ability to update or remove the invalid rule and then still apply the old checkpoint configuration.
When importing a configuration file, Console users also have the same ability described above to view and edit the imported config in a modal before applying the same way as restore points. The modal will indicate if anything in the imported config is referencing an object that was deleted, and allow updates to be made before attempting to apply the imported config file.
