Firewall Groups

Create the templates of firewall rules and let the templates be arranged into groups. The groups can be later applied to virtual machines.

    Thanks for the feedback and comments.

    The ability to give comments for firewall rules has been already added and will be released in the nearest 6.1 Edge release.

    Regarding the other requirements, these are among those which I hope to include into one of our later versions.

    In the meanwhile, I'd engage everyone to upvote and comment if you feel this feature will add you value.

    We've been requesting a major overhaul of firewalling for some time. Not just groups that can be applied to a VM:

    - Allow users to group their VM FW rules, turn a group on/off
    - Allow users to add comments to rules
    - Allow users to define a group of IPs e.g. ServerAdmins and apply a rule using that rather than having to create a rule for each IP.
    - Allow users to define a group of ports e.g. AdminPorts (22,7080) and apply a rule using that.
