Managing the filter mode via UI

The filter mode allows to enable and disable the blocking of requests to various parts of a web application.

To do this, create a Set traffic filtration mode rule and select the appropriate mode.

The filter mode can take on the following values:

  • default — the system will work in accordance with the parameters specified in the Nginx configuration files.
  • disabled — the analysis and filtration of requests are turned off completely.
  • monitoring — the requests are analyzed and displayed in the interface but they aren't blocked.
  • blocking — malicious requests are blocked and displayed in the interface.

To implement this rule, the Nginx configuration files must permit centralized management of the operation mode.

Example: disablement of request blocking during user registration

If

  • new user registration is available at example.com/signup
  • it's better to overlook an attack than to lose a customer

Then, to create a rule to disable blocking during user registration:

  1. Go to Settings -> Rules
  2. Find the branch for example.com/signup and click Add rule
  3. Choose Set traffic filtration mode
  4. Choose operation mode monitoring
  5. Click Create
