I sent in an official "enhancement request", but it seems WebSense will not provide a better or more readable output for their "export Policies" button.
I suggested, that instead of all the Categories and Protocols in a single line down the page (THOUSANDS of lines, and lots of extranious information), that it list the Categories down, and columns of Policies tabbed across the top. Similar to this example below: (This took me 4+ hours to manipulate from their layout):
Would any others like to see this type of layout native from their "Export Policies" spreadsheet? If so, send in your enhancement requests, or reply to this post....
Now the status of the FR is under investigation and i have just commented it what you mentioned above . I guess the product management team already felt the pressure of realeasing this FR, let's just give them more time
Thanks for the reply phyliis!
It's appreciated that someone from Websense acknowledged the needs of the customer and that this feature is being at least considered.
I struggle with this too. Anytime our MIS Committee wants a policy report, I pretty much cancel my lunch dates for the rest of the week. All kidding aside, the 17k lines of information is hard to condense into a usable format. Great suggestion. I we get a better format in a "soon to be released" release.
I concur that this would be much more useful format. Let me add in the request that a description field for custom categories be added to the report to make these user additions self-documenting.
I was about the suggest this feature also, and would like to request the feature also.
This is a PERFECT way to display your policies and the resulting
dispositions. It also helps in debugging if necessary. Management
would also appreciate a slick format for their usage also, so when
people who don't follow any process come banging down VP's door
demanding unfettered access, they can then direct them to a choice of
what is available. With this type of ammunition, they can turn away the
"complainer" and ask them to follow the process as noted.
GREAT IDEA!!! I'm all for it, and wonder ALOUD why this is not a standard format or readily available reporting function
Category, Disposition and Policy/Filter Applied is a critical need for adequately supporting this tool. A built in report/SQL Query should also be available. Or at least the Category, Disposition, Policy Applied, Filter Applied and Protocols Applied information in the SQL Tables for customizing queries/reports by the customer.
3 Years and counting is a long time from something so fundamental for supporting and reporting on this application.
