Filter Mode Rule¶
The filter mode allows you to enable and disable the blocking of requests to various parts of a web application.
To set a filter mode, create a Set traffic filtration mode rule and select the appropriate mode.
The filter mode can take one of the following values:
default: the system will work in accordance with the parameters specified in the NGINX configuration files.
off: the analysis and filtration of requests are disabled completely.
monitoring: the requests are analyzed and displayed in the interface but they are not 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: Disabling Request Blocking During User Registration¶

new user registration is available at example.com/signup
it is better to overlook an attack than to lose a customer
Then, to create a rule disabling blocking during user registration
- Go to the Rules tab
- Find the branch for
example.com/signup, and click Add rule
- Choose Set traffic filtration mode
