Hi XG community,
We are giving customers advance notice of upcoming changes to Application signatures in XG Firewall.
These changes will take effect in the week beginning May 21, 2018. They will affect all versions of XG Firewall currently in use.
Several of our application signatures have names that are no longer appropriate for the applications they detect or that are inconsistent with our current naming practices.
As these changes take effect, they may cause the following customer impacts:
App Filter policy rules will automatically adapt to use the new names.
Some of our application signatures were created to detect traffic from applications that are no longer operational or for application features that no longer exist. Removing these signatures should have little or no customer impact as none of these signatures will have triggered for some time.
The following applications will be removed:
We may need to make further changes to application names, or remove obsolete application signatures from time to time. Where possible, we will provide prior notice of these changes via this release notes & news forum.
The original post was updated to correct the date of the expected change, which as originally stated was not the start of a week.
