Our auditor is not happy with a manually created spreadsheet which we have. And exporting the rules provides an XML format. I imported this into an excel spreadsheet but the header metadata is meaningless. How can I have a meaningful metadata ?
Basically, how can I have something I can export on a real-time basis that shows the firewall rules in a meaningful way ?
One more question is there a place in the NSX firewall rule where I can type in a description of the rule
You can add the description either in the name field or in the comments field.
Normally we define any specific description about the rules/polices in the comment field.
It is hidden by default. Need to select it manually to make it visible.
I have not tested in from my end but the below links says it is possible via Power CLI.
They have explained how to achieve it.
