Access list

Access list

This chapter provides information to use the Bulk Administration menu to insert, delete, and export access lists. An access list comprises a sequential list that consists of at least one permit statement and possibly one or more deny statements that apply to IP addresses and possibly upper-layer IP protocols. The access list has a name by which it is referenced. Many software commands accept an access list as part of their syntax.

Insert access lists

You can insert access lists using BAT.

Before You Begin
  • You must have a data file in comma separated value (CSV) format that contains the unique details for the access lists.
  • Upload the data files by choosing the relevant target and function for the transaction.
Procedure
    Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > Mobility > Access List > Access List Insert. The Insert Access List Configuration window displays.
    Step 2   From the File Name drop-down list box, choose the file that you uploaded.
    Step 3   To override the existing configuration, check the Override the existing configuration check box.
    Step 4   In the Job Information section, enter a description for the job. The default description specifies Insert Access List.
    Step 5   You can choose to run the job immediately or later by selecting the corresponding radio button.
    Step 6   To create a job for inserting the access list, click Submit.

    A message in the Status section lets you know that the job was submitted successfully.

    Step 7   To schedule and/or activate this job, use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu.

    Delete access lists

    You can delete access lists using BAT.

    Before You Begin
    • You must have a data file that contains the access list names.
    • Upload the data files by choosing the relevant target and function for the transaction.

      Note


      Do not use the insert or export transaction files that are created with bat.xlt for the delete transaction. Instead, you must create a custom file with details of the access list records that need to be deleted. Use only this file for the delete transaction. In this custom delete file, you do not need a header, and you can enter values for access list names.


    Procedure
      Step 1   Choose Bulk Administration > Mobility > Access List > Access List Delete. The Delete Access List Configuration window displays.
      Step 2   From the Delete Access List where name in custom file drop-down list box, choose the file that you uploaded for deleting access list, and click Find.
      Step 3   The Job Information section displays along with the selected access list.
      Step 4   You can choose to run the job immediately or later by selecting the corresponding radio button.
      Step 5   To create a job for deleting the access list, click Submit.

      A message in the Status section lets you know that the job was submitted successfully.

      Step 6   Use the Job Scheduler option in the Bulk Administration main menu to schedule and/or activate this job.
