The available buttons are:
|Add||Inserts a line to be configured after the selected line.|

|Cut||Removes the selected line and moves it to the clipboard.|
|Copy||Copies the selected line and moves it to the clipboard.|
|Paste||Pastes the line from the clipboard above the selected line.|
|Add all predefined categories||This button makes it possible to create as many filter rules as the number of URL categories in the selected URL base at once.

Errors found in the SSL filter policy
The screen for editing SSL filter rules on the firewall has a rule compliance and coherence analyzer which warns the administrator when a rule inhibits another rule or if there is an error in a rule.
This analyzer groups errors during the creation of rules or incoherent rules.
Errors are displayed in the form of a list. By clicking on an error, the rule concerned will automatically be selected.
