Comment column for custom url categories?

L4 Transporter

IP lists for edls have:

Is there a way to add a comment to why a specific URL was added into an already existing custom URL category?    Like a description for an address object, but a column or way to add some notes as to why a URL was placed into a custom category?

Hi @Sec101 , you can add a "#" in front of text you would like to be comments.

@JayGolf Even on a custom URL category entry?
Custom category: Television


*    #comment here?  is this how it would work?  Assuming you need a space inbetween your entry and the comment area?

just tested
*    #comment here

it appears that 
test custom-url url *   no longer matches into a category just shows "no custom category matched"

Hi @Sec101 ,

Have you tried to put the comment above the URL, so to have # at the beginning of the comment line? This will probably tell the firewall to ignore the whole line and move on to the next one. 


I have never tried to use comments in URL EDLs, but I am thinking that URL EDL could probably don't support comments because it is using the # and / as special characters when parsing the URL (while such shouldn't be part of normal IP address)



I agree with you in that character could be used in the URL.    It would be nice ot have something where you could document the change in the list itself (like an address object).
