regulate internet access by scheduled time

Jump to solution

Hi All,

is it possible, on MWG, to define a rule-set or something to regulate internet access by scheduled time?

Example: Internet Access Allowed from 08.00 AM to 10.00 AM.

thanks a lot

Daniele

Hi Daniele,

Yes, this is indeed possible.

You could use the property "DateTime.Time.Hour" and set the value that you want to include from 0-23 on a 24-hr basis.

Regards,

Philip

Hello,

yes. There are properties for Time and Date decisions. You can create a rule that only matches from 8 to 10. Depending on the action of the rule you can allow/deny traffic.

Best,

Andre

Hi all,

thanks for the answer...

I'll could use Date.Time.Hours is in list "hours"

where  "hours" is a list of hours.

Applies to: Request, Response and embedded object

Criteria Always

Action Block<Block_Internet_Page>

I'll could use this rulset above, in head of all rule.

right?

thanks a lot

Hi all,
I've configured the rule "Date.Time.Hour" and working correctly...
but my customer would like to have a more granular control.
the desire is: from 13:15 to 14.45
How can I configure the ruleset to accomplish what customer want? is there a  way to configure a time range instead a list of hours?

thanks a lot

cheers!

Daniele

Hi Daniele,

Sure does your customer give you a hard time

I dont think there's a property which can create a range.

.

But you could configure this by mixing properties of date.time.hour and date.time.minute.

You could use the following rule for this,

"(Date.time.hour = 13 AND Date.time.minute equals or greater than 15)

OR

(Date.time.hour = 14 AND Date.Time.Minute equals or less than 45)"

Regards,

Philip

Thanks Philip!
I've just tried this:

a  DateTime.Time.Hour equals 17
b AND DateTime.Time.Minute greater than or equals 25
c AND DateTime.Time.Hour equals 17
d AND DateTime.Time.Minute less than or equals 30
e AND URL.Host matches in list WhiteList

and seems all is working good

thanks again!

Daniele

Hello,

in 7.4 you can also use DateTime.Time.IsInRange! You configure it like:

DateTime.Time.IsInRange(08:30:00-12:30:00, 13:30:00-17:00:00) Then Block

Probably simpler than the solution before.

Best,

Andre
