    Default Custom firewall block entry - Remove from logs

    I have a couple of custom FW entries set to block traffic for certain IoT devices that constantly call home.
    While that works as expected, an unintended side effect is that my firewall is filled with only these entries making it very difficult to review

    Given that I already know that traffic from said hosts is being blocked, is it possible to filter out/stopping logging of the entries for blocked devices from the logs?

    Hi Zuperczar,

    Just uncheck the "Flag" checkbox and it should just block without creating any log.

    "Flagging a session marks it in the logs for reviewing in the event logs or reports, but has no direct effect on the network traffic."

    Unfortunately Flagged cannot be unchecked if blocked is checked.

    Ahh.. Funny I always add Flagged on my Pass rules as we need to log everything.
    And just one block rule so never even tried unchecking Flagged on a block-rule..
