Application Control Profile GUI Improvements

This version adds multiple GUI enhancements to the Application Control Profile including:

  • A right-sided pane in the sensor page to display FortiGuard help links.
  • Individual application overrides and filter overrides tables are combined into one override table. The two types are combined when adding a new override.
  • Override entries in the table display sequence numbers and can be reordered by dragging and dropping.

Specific application overrides and filter overrides tables are combined into one override table, where signature and filter entries are mixed together. A right-sided gutter has been added to sensor page to display FortiGuard help links.

For specific applications, parent/child application structures are removed.

Override entries in the table display sequence numbers that can be reordered by dragging and dropping.

Entries in the Application and Filter Overrides table can be reordered by dragging the priority number to the desired position. The priority number and the selected entries are reordered.

In the Application and Filter Overrides section, the pane to add and edit overrides entries has two tabs: Application and Filter.

For each entry in the override table, you can only configure one type: for Application or Filter option.
