Situation:We have a couple of users that are coming from different IP ranges. Each group should have a slightly different content policy.Actual solution:Our workaround is to define an IP group for each of our incoming ranges. Then we define exceptions to the default policy using the ip group as source to apply the exception to.Problem: our biggest problem with this is that the exception table fills up and gets horribly crowded with rules that sometimes overlap each other. Moving entries to the top gets annoying when you have to click the mouse 200 times to get a rule to the top.Solution:a) best solution would be to assign a custom content policy to a certain ip range - completely ignoring the standard policyb) second best would be if there where something like a content group (like the custom category) where we could cumulate the special allow/block/monitor for each range. In contrast to the custom categories this content group should not affect the rulebase in general. We once tried to accomplish this by using custom cats but as they show up in the general content policy this solution did not work out.General Feature Request: enhance the exception rules management. It would be great to be able to:- insert a rule above/below a selected row- edit an exisitng rule- move a row to a specified row (e.g. by naming the row number after which it should be moved)
