EDLs are external dynamic lists that are published for consumption by a firewall.  They can be composed of 1 or more sources. 

In an EDL you need to specify:

  • Name
  • Include Sources
    • Data from these sources will be including in the published EDL
  • Exclude Sources
    • Data found in these sources will be excluded from the published EDL
    • Exact matches only. Does not evaluate based on CIDR block.
  • Enable HTTP Basic Auth

Do not select the same sources for both Include and Exclude.  If you do, your EDL will be blank.

Advanced EDL Settings

You can also configure Advanced EDL Settings.

Permission Tags

If you have the correct permissions, you can edit the permission tags of an EDL.  If you do not have the correct permissions, this option will not be visible.

Object Count

This is how many objects are in the EDL.  The number is a link where you can view a graph of the object count over time.
