Control Center and V7 to V8 Migration

Jump to solution

After using the V7 to V8 migration script there is some rule clean-up to be done.  We are using Control Center.  Does anyone know of a way to mass edit rules in CC?  For example, the migration script creates multiple App Defenses, and I need to go into hundreds of rules to change the App Defense.   I also need to go into all the rules to associate them with the specific firewalls the rules belong to. Again, there are hundreds of rules and many firewalls.

I am guessing that I will have to export the rule set out of CC, into a text file, script the rule edit and then import them all back into to CC to push out to various FWs.  Has anyone done this yet and / or created the script if that is the only way?

Cheers,

KB71733 had the answer in Tutorial TU30245.  You can now drag and drop an App Def into multi-highlighted rules within CC.  GREAT NEW FEATURE!!  thanks for sending me in the right direction Dave...

Control Center has a 'Find and Replace' option (check out the icons above the rules on the right hand side). Generally I would recommend that you create the application defense you want. Then do a find and replace and replace all the old ones with the new ones.

Check out KB71733 for some videos and other documentation on upgrading and rule clean-up

Thanks.  I found the find and replace option in CC, but it only allows me to select Network Objects (source and destinations) or firewalls.  I do not see an option to find and replace App Defenses or Firewalls that rules are associated with.  I am running CC 5.2.1 to a 8.2.1 MFE.

Glad you found it! I forgot the find and replace didn't work for app defenses (we might need to change that). I am glad you found the drag and drop to multiple rules helpful. I was just going to suggest that as a follow-up, but you beat me to it.
