Configuring Time-Based Rules

  • Last updated on

Time-based policies enable an administrator to apply the rules on the service traffic for a specific period. The time-based rules function the same way as other rules but are effective only during the specified time range. The time can be set as per the system time specified on the BASIC > Administration page, Time section. You can create a time-based rule group and add multiple time-based policies with different time ranges. A created time-based rule group can then be associated with multiple content rules on the BASIC > Services page or ADRs (Allow/Deny/Redirect rules) on the WEBSITES > Allow/Deny/Redirect page. The time-based policies are activated at the specified time. 

Add a New Time-Based Rule Group
  1. Go to the ADVANCED > Libraries page, Time-Based Rules section.
  2. Enter a name in the New Group field and click Add.
  3. Click Add Policy to add a new time policy.
  4. On the Add Time Policy page, specify values for the following:
    • Policy Name – Enter a name for the time policy.

    • Recurrence – Select an option from the drop-down list.

      • Daily – Set the time (in the 24-hour format) for the policy to be activated daily. The policy activates automatically at the specified time range every day, and the rule associated with the time policy is enforced for the specified time range.

      • Weekly – Set the day and time (in the 24-hour format) for the policy to be activated weekly. The policy activates automatically at the specified day and time range every week, and the rule associated with the time policy is enforced for the specified time range.

      • Monthly – Set the date and time (in the 24-hour format) for the policy to be activated monthly. The policy activates automatically at the specified date and time range every month, and the rule associated with the time policy is enforced for the specified time range.

      • None – Use this option when you want the time policy to be activated only once. When Recurrence is set to None, use the Start Time and End Time fields to set the time range.

    • Start Time – (Applicable only when Recurrence is set to None.) Set the date and time for the time policy to be activated.

    • End Time – (Applicable only when Recurrence is set to None.) Set the date and time for the time policy to end.

  5. Click Save.
