To Import and merge rules

When using the signature editor to perform an import and merge operation from the GUI, you can now see the new, updated, duplicate, and invalid rules.

The signature editor displays the following four new rows:

  1. New Rules

  2. Updated Rules

  3. Duplicate Rules

  4. Invalid Rules

The output of the New Rules Only and Updated Rules Only filters also appears in the Category filter pane of the Edit window in signature editor.

You will need to import the files from GUI to see the corresponding links for New, duplicate, invalid and updated rules.

For example, you can use GUI to import the following signature files:
