Delete Custom Rule Set from library


Is there any possibility to delete a custom Rule Set from the Rule Set Library?

I can export, save,.... but can't delete or overwrite a Rule Set.

just delete the XML file in the following path, then logout and back in to the web-gui

/opt/mwg/storage/<newest config date>/library/RuleGroups/custom/<TEMPLATE NAME>

Hi all,

i think this should also be added to the MWG Gui.



Re: Delete Custom Rule Set from library

Hi all,

so, i have the same question, but i have 17 Gateways in a cluster, and it seems to be synchronized with the ruleset. And as far as i remember, the config has some kind of consistency-check. If i delete the file, shouldn't it revert to the last known consistent config?

BTW, in the meantime the path has changed a little to:

/opt/mwg/storage/default/<active configuration>/library/RuleGroups/custom

And i agree with Thorsten, it would be fine to have a "Delete"-button in the GUI 🙂

Re: Delete Custom Rule Set from library

Voted up those in favor of a GUI option.

It's way to easy to forget to select the "Export to File" option.  At least make that the default (an easy change, I expect).

As often I as export rule sets, it's unavoidable that I would occasionally export to library by accident.  In fact, I'm a bit shocked that "Export to Rule set library" is the default.
