Using lists in rules

About Lists

Lists can be used to create and maintain sets of data for use when creating rules. Lists allow you to easily reuse the same sets of data across multiple rules. Lists can be created on individual sites (Site Lists) as well as the corp as a whole (Corp Lists) to be easily used in multiple sites.

For example, you could create a list of prohibited countries that you don't do business with. You could then use this list in any rules that involve those countries, such as rules to track registration or login attempts originating from those countries. If a prohibited country changes, simply update the list instead of updating every rule that uses it.

Lists can consist of the following types of data:

Limitations and caveats

  • Lists support CIDR notation for IP address ranges.
  • Lists are limited to 25 per corp plus 25 per site.
  • Lists can contain a maximum of 5000 items.

Creating a List

Create both Corp and Site lists using these steps.

Corp Lists

  1. From the Corp Rules menu, select Corp Lists.
  2. Click Add corp list.
  3. From the Type menu, select the type of data the list will contain.
  4. In the Name field, enter the name of the list.
  5. (Optional) In the Description (optional) field, enter a description for the list.
  6. In the Entries field, enter the items that will comprise the list. Each entry must be on its own line.
  7. Click Create corp list.
IMPORTANT

Only Owners can create, edit, and delete Corp Lists. This is because Corp Lists have the ability to manipulate traffic across every site and other user types can only manage Rules and Lists for sites they have access to.

Site Lists

  1. From the Site Rules menu, select Site Lists.
  2. Click New list.
  3. From the Type menu, select the type of data the list will contain.
  4. In the Name field, enter the name of the list.
  5. (Optional) In the Description (optional) field, enter a description for the list.
  6. In the Entries field, enter the items that will comprise the list. Each entry must be on its own line.
  7. Click Create site list.
