Macros or profiles or whatever…

  • Hi all,
    is there a way to define macros in the webGUI or something like a firewall profile?

    I want to have a convenient way to put our company website into maintenance mode, i.e. disable public access and providers' access ports.
    Right now, the process is to disable all ports, one by one.

    I understand that this could probably be handled by a script in the CLI, but I am not the only one handling the firewall and not everybody should have to use the CLI for that.

  • With optimal firewall rules, that should be as simple as one click to disable that particular rule. Or if it's more complex than that to the extent you can't pass the traffic easily with a single rule, have a block rule at the top that you enable for maintenance, leave disabled normally.
