Q: Monitor disabled rules. Our company purchased Limagito products and used it for several years, and I am very happy to have such a useful product. I want to ask a technical question. Several of our colleagues manage all the built rules together, but sometimes we accidentally turn it off and forget to turn it on. I would like to ask if there is any way to scan all RULES in limagito and find that its status is “Disable”, so we can create a job to monitor this and send a mail to notify us. Looking forward to your help, and wish you all good health.
A: In version v2020.12.6.0 we added Pascal Script as Source. This new option makes it possible for us to achieve your request. Let’s get started.
- Select PScript (Pascal Script) as Source:
Add the following Pascal Script (Copy / Paste):
Var tmpInfo: String; tmpList: TStringList; Const ctFileName = 'Disabled_Rules.txt'; Begin // Init Var psClearSourceFiles; // Clear SourceFiles Listing psExitCode:= 1; // We'll use a TStringList that we'll fill with Disabled Rules Data tmpList := TStringList.Create; Try Try // Function psGetDisabledRuleList(Const aIncGroupname, // aIncRuleName, aIncRuleID: Boolean; Const aDelimiter, aQuoteChar: Char): String; // Request for All Disabled Rules using Tab(#9) as Delimiter // Include Groupname, RuleName and RuleID tmpInfo := psGetDisabledRuleList(True, True, True, #9, #0); If tmpInfo <> '' Then Begin // We'll use psVSA paramter in our email setup later psVSA := tmpInfo // Add to List tmpList.add(tmpInfo); // Save List To File tmpList.SaveToFile(psRuleTempPath + ctFileName); // Add To SourceFiles List psAddToSourceFiles(psRuleTempPath + ctFileName); End; Except psLogWrite(1, '', 'Save File ' + psRuleTempPath + ctFileName + ' Exception'); End; Finally tmpList.Free; End; End.
It also possible to request all Enabled Rules. In this case you need to replace
tmpInfo := psGetDisabledRuleList(True, True, True, #9, #0);
tmpInfo := psGetEnabledRuleList(True, True, True, #9, #0);
- Add SMTP as Destination:
- SMTP as Destination Setup:
We added %VSA parameter which also contains the Disabled Rule(s). Option ‘Include Source File as Attachment’ is also enabled so the text file containing the Disabled Rule information will be attached to the email.
