Release Notes:


When editing Rules, there is a Move ICON. Would it be possible to have the "MOVE" ICON in the Alias edit screen?

Another option is just a Sort function. The code is currently available in other parts of pfSense.
Adding a class identifier to the table definition?
The column headers would be clickable and sort in ascending or descending order when clicked.

For me its not that I need it for a functional reason (ie order of rules etc).
Its more to keep the alias lists organized. After changes, the Alias lists can get a bit scattered and it can make it harder to find mistakes.

I agree this would be a very nice feature to have, as would the ability to sort or re-order the "interfaces" lists which become quite unweildy when lots of VLANs are in use

I would really like this feature too. When having aliases with 15 or 20 hosts etc. it is easier to maintain if they can be arranged in order on the user interface.

Feature missing in 2.1.5 and 2.2 RC.

The other really useful feature would be to be able to disable entries in the alias list without having to remove them, like it is possible with rules.

+1 for me too, and also +1 for Volker's suggestion.

Actions #7

Updated by Lars Jorgensen over 7 years ago

+1 for me too. We have aliases with more than 50 hosts and it's a nightmare to find what you need. Same thing goes for aliases with ports: Please sort the entries numerically.

Actions #8

Updated by Jim Pingle almost 5 years ago

  • Category changed from Web Interface to Rules / NAT
  • Status changed from New to Duplicate

Sorting aliases in the GUI can be done now (click column headers), other parts are covered by #6908
