        Why all these new features are just planned for XG? We need this also in utm 9!
        Are there any features that will be implemented in utm 9.x?
        We lose more and more customers. All these customers are happy with utm 9 and they don't need XG. Is UTM 9 dead?

        I am aware that it can be done in copernicus but is there no way to export definitions at the moment

        I found this thread as I'm having to create a group for Exchange Online Protection. They have a really nice text list just begging for a copy/paste. Too bad for me this feature isn't available today. I do look forward to it in the future.

        In June 2009 (!!!!!!) this feature was requested, which is needed for exporting network definitions (maybe also firewall- and wepprotection-rules) and maybe to also import them again in a utm.

        As it is a lot of work to re-enter over 900IP’s (which we currently have) manually if we would have to transfer it to a different UTM etc.

        This is really important for us.

        Kind regards

        An import for "iptables-save" command would be very helpful!

        We need to be able to export network object definitions to match to the firewall rules for PCI compliance. Please make this happen.

        Agreed....you guys really need to at least allow folks to import a list of hostnames and IPs or subnets, if for no other reason than to facilitate migrations away from other vendors! Please make this possible. it is clearly one of the most desired features from customers and partners.

        Well,

        is it that difficult to add this import/export function. Would be very useful!!!

        I have 21000+ IPs to block. It seems this haven't received any traction since 2009. Hopefully Sophos can implement this feature soon!

        Nearly six years on, and still this feature is lacking. I have 300 IPs to block (malware) and I have to manually create a definition for each - I can't import them, and there's not even a 'list' defintion such that the IPs could be entered under one definition... this seems to me to be a serious deficiency in a product that's supposedly relatively high end.

        And importing is something that isn't thaaaat hard.... One column for the IP, one for the type of the definition, comment, etc.

      • TKTK commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I can't believe import/export of definitions is still not implemented! 5 (FIVE) YEARS later...
        Guys, please, get yourself together!

        It would be extremely helpful if 'power users' were able to export pieces of their configuration as text files that can be posted in the user forums, and other users be able to import these configuration examples to easily fix common issues - I'm currently searching for a solution to allowing Android devices to access Netflix.
