#Add a New Rule to all Firewall Policies
Author: Tim Spencer - firstname.lastname@example.org
This Ruby script creates a firewall rule and adds it to all defined firewall policies.
##Requirements and Dependencies
To run, this script requires:
- Ruby installed on the host that runs the script
- Ruby gems: oauth2, rest-client, json (see Gemfile, below)
- Full-access Halo API key (for write access to the API)
Note: Currently, this script works only on Linux firewalls.
##List of Files
- addruletoallpolicies.rb: - The script file
- Gemfile: - Ruby file you can use for bundler installation of the required gems; included for your convenience
- Gemfile.lock - .lock file from a bundler install; included for your reference
- README.md - This ReadMe file
- LICENSE.txt - License from CloudPassage
There comes a time when you need to add a rule to all your firewall policies. If you have many firewall policies, this is very tedious to do! I wrote this script to do this automatically using the CloudPassage API. It's a bit simple, but it suited my needs. You can probably adapt it to whatever your particular needs are pretty easily by editing the json.
- Create environment variables HALO_ID and HALO_SECRET_KEY to hold your full-access Halo API key (copied from the Halo Portal).
- In the script, give the "zonename" variable the name of the IP zone (must already be defined in the Portal) that you want the rule to use.
- In the "rule=" definition in the script, configure the firewall rule as you wish.
- Execute the script.
