If you are managing a larger number of firewalls in your Control Center, you might have to exclude certain firewalls from receiving configuration changes by the Control Center. Usually, you must disable forwarding configuration changes for each firewall individually. Now, however, you can select multiple firewalls from a list and apply the option Disable/Enable to all the firewalls at once.
