Schedule Objects

  • Last updated on

Create schedules to configure time restrictions on an hourly, weekly, or calendar-date basis that can be applied to access rules and application policies. Rules and policies that include a schedule are only active for the date and/or timespan defined in the schedule. Schedules use the time of the Barracuda NextGen X-Series Firewall they are running on.

Create a Schedule

  1. Go to FIREWALL > Schedules.
  2. Click Add Schedule to create a new schedule. The Add Schedule window opens.

  3. Enter a Name for the schedule.
  4. Select Terminate Existing Sessions if open connections should be closed as soon as the time restriction applies.

    1. Select the Recurring check box.

    2. Select the days and enter the daytimes for the schedule to be active.

    3. Click the plus sign (+) to add the time interval.

      A time schedule entry can cover up to one week, starting on Mon-00:00, and ending on Mo 0:00 of the next week. To enable the schedule for an interval crossing the Mo 00:00 threshold, split the entry. E.g., Fri-15:00 to Mo 0:00 and Mon-00:00 to Tue-10:30.

  6. To activate the schedule only in a specific date range:

    1. Select the One-Time check box.
