Backup and firmware

You can manage the configuration, firmware versions, hotfixes, and pattern updates.

Backup and restore: You can take a backup of the configuration and restore it.

API: You can add, update, and delete rules, policies, and objects using the API. Doing this enables you to keep the configuration consistent across many XG Firewall devices.

Import export: You can import and export the full configuration or parts of it, for example, rules, policies, settings, and objects. You can use this to make offline changes to the exported XML file and then import it.

You can only import partial configurations from lower to higher models of XG Firewall. For compatible devices, see Backup-restore compatibility check.

Firmware: You can update XG Firewall with a different firmware version. You can also apply hotfixes automatically. The page allows you to change the default language for the web admin console.

Pattren updates: You can specify manual or automatic updates for some modules, such as antivirus, IPS, application signatures, and WAF.
