WebAdmin: Export / Import of Network Definitions
Make it possible to export and import lists of definitions - especially host definitions.
This feature is included in the upcoming release, code-named Project Copernicus. It is currently in public beta. For more details, please see https://www.astaro.org/beta-versions/project-copernicus-public-beta
this would be quite useful for me
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.
we miss this Features.
An import for "iptables-save" command would be very helpful!
Would be very helpful if we could get an import/export feature!!

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

This would save us HOURS. Need this feature ASAP!

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.
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.

This would help our firewall management a lot!
this would help me a lot!
And importing is something that isn't thaaaat hard.... One column for the IP, one for the type of the definition, comment, etc.
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.

Export / import to CSV! Please!

It will be great if you add export/import option for all definitions.
Otherwise i must manualy create 785 definitions.
especially for great migrations to SOPHOS UTM it is very, very helpful you can import and export definitions AND rules, made bei a notepad editor bevore. It is a time eater to tipping more than 300 objects and 200 rules into the SOPHOS Appliance. Great idea to include this feature.
An export / IMPORT of ALL Definitions (network, Services, Time periods, etc) to a txt, gz, zip etc file would be great. Lots of us use a txt editor, VI comes to mind. Great to be able to save output from that and import to your appliance.
