Bulk Operations on Enterprise Cloud Portal

In addition to adding web filtering rules one by one, Puffin Enterprise Cloud Portal provides bulk import and export features.

  • Note: The file uploader supports text files in the format of one rule per line. A rule consists of an action (ALLOW or BLOCK), a space, and the included websites. For example:

How to import a text file:

  1. Navigate to Filtering rules.
  2. Click Import/export.
  3. Under the Import section, click Choose File and choose the target text file (.txt) to upload.
  4. Click Upload.
  5. Click OK when the confirmation dialog appears.
  6. The rules are imported and will overwrite your existing data.
  7. Once you've configured the web filtering rules, you can download a text file (.txt) of the rules to your hard drive. You can show this file to others to let them know the currently active web filtering rules without giving them access to Enterprise Cloud Portal.

Also, you may download the file, perform some editing, and import the file to Enterprise Cloud Portal again to implement new rules.

How to export your web filtering rules:

  1. Navigate to Filtering rules.
  2. Click Import/export.
  3. Scroll to Export web filtering rules.
  4. Click Export and download as a text file and save the file to your local hard drive.

Please notice that Puffin Cloud Portal is only available for Business and Enterprise subscribers.
