Rule Set Views

The user interface provides two kinds of views for a rule set, the key elements view and the complete rules view.

  • Key elements view — This view shows key elements of the rules in a rule set and allows you to configure them. It appears first when you select a rule set.
    To complete more complex activities regarding individual rules, you can switch to the other view that is provided.
  • Complete rules view — This view shows the rules that are in a rule set completely with all their elements. It allows you to configure all rule elements that are configurable on Web Gateway.

  • To work with nested rule sets, click Unlock View for the nesting rule set.
  • The nested rule sets appear on the rule sets tree, with the complete rule sets view enabled for each of them.
  • To display the nested rule sets of the default Common Rules rule set, expand this rule set.
    The complete rules view is already enabled for the last of the nested rule sets, while the others are still displayed in the key elements view.

NOTE: You can use the Unlock option of the rule set context menu to leave the key elements view for one or more rule sets at once.

  1. Select one rule set or several rule sets at once, then right-click and select Unlock.
    You can also expand a rule set that includes nested rule sets and select one or more nested rule sets.
  2. Confirm that you want to leave the key elements view.
    The complete rules view is enabled for all selected rule sets
Permissions Opens a window for configuring who is allowed to access the rule set with the key elements you are currently configuring.
Key elements for a
rule set

The key elements vary for each rule set.

Key elements for related functions are displayed in a group. Each group is preceded by a group header.

For example, on the key elements view for URL filtering, key elements are displayed in the groups Basic Filtering, SafeSearch, and others.

These groups contain key elements for basic URL filtering, for additionally using SafeSearch functions in the filtering process, and for other functions.

Complete rules view

The complete rules view shows the complete rules that are contained in a rule set. It allows you to work with their elements, including the key elements.

You can edit and delete rules and create rules of your own. You can also edit, delete, and create rule sets. New rule sets can be filled with existing rules, as well as with rules of your own.

You can also import rule sets from a rule set library on Web Gateway and from an online rule set library. You can work with these rule sets and their rules in the same way as with any other rules and rule sets.
