Source user Questions

L1 Bithead

I am a beginner engineer in Japan.
We need to put it in the hundreds of source users policy this time.
Is there any other way than to input one by one?

Can you expand on your question a bit and describe what you are actually trying to accomplish? 

appreciate sir!


I'm trying to create an ACL that allows ID users. I'm typing them in one by one. It's taking too long.
Is there any way?



Are you pulling in group information from your user-id source, or are you using local users?

If you are pulling in user-id information from something like Active Directory, then you would configure Group Mapping and pull in whatever groups you need to utilize. That way you only need to create a group in AD and that group can be used in your firewall rulebase going forward.

If you are using local users, then you are going to want to create a local user group instead of specifying every individual user across your rulebase. This would either be done manually by adding each individual user, or you would script it through SSH/API so that it didn't take as long. 

appreciate sir!
 unfortunately, I don't have the authority to touch the ad, but thanks to you, I studied a lot.


The easiest like BPry mentioned is to use AD groups. Have the AD team create one with the required users. Add the group via the user-id function. Then set your policies to use the AD groups rather than individual users.


Hope that helps.
