Applying policies across a group of same-type Barracuda products is perhaps the most powerful feature of the group context.
For example, if you have several Barracuda Web Application Firewalls grouped and you want to enable Encrypted Cookie Security Mode on all of the devices, you would do the following:
- Click on the group link for those products in the product tree.
- Navigate to the BASIC > Default Security page and click on Encrypted for Cookie Security Mode, the Save Changes. This setting synchronizes across all devices.
- To change the value of a setting on just one of the devices, from the product tree, click on the device itself within the group. You’ll see the individual product web interface, where you can navigate to the appropriate page and change the setting as needed. Doing so causes a yellow Exception () icon to appear in the Group context web interface.
