    Forwarded to our developers, should be an easy addition.

    You mean the pause/resume part, or complete api based Rule management? :)
    Either way: sounds great!

    Is it possible to get some feedback if/when this has been decided on?

    Let me check and get back to you. It may be in 2.3.0 or 2.4.0

    We are talking about a Rules api, correct?

    That would be awesome and open up a lot of new automation/integration possibilities!

    Should be; with every release we add a few more API's for sure.

    I wanted to add to this conversation in case it is still possible or if its been released and I somehow missed it. This is my #1 request for the MSP. I agree with the initial request that the most critical part would be to pause/resume existing rules via the API.

    My use case is that I've got a handful of rules used in combination to control traffic on the network for my kids. What I really want to be able to do is pause/resume several rules at a time via a script so that I can automate the management of those rules and, thus, the traffic.

    +1 on this ask from me. I’d like to integrate Firewalla rule controls to Home Assistant to help me easily enable, disable, and create more flexible timers on some rules for my kid’s devices. I don’t want to use HA to create new rules, just display the status and enable/disable existing rules. This would help my partner who does not understand networking/firewalls/etc. I’m willing to buy a license for API usage if I can use it for this. Thanks!

    Just saw 2.4.0 hit early access…Any chance this made the cut?

    Doesn't look like it is in 2.4.0... +1 from me. This would be the only reason to pay for MSP.

    I actually have been paying and hoping this would come. I will continue to if I'm honest especially w/ the new pricing. But I really would love to see this come sooner than later. Feels overdue at this point to me.

    Would @firewalla share the list used for video and gaming traffic. We can then dynamically alter the target list to in effect make a rule permit instead of block.

    Interesting idea! Doubt they would share it (and I wouldn't blame them for not) but this would technically work! That said seems better to just make the dang API public lol
