Name field for Firewall Rules
Being able to assign a firewall rule a name that can be tracked through the life of the rule is a great tool to help manage your firewall. If the name also shows up in the logs especially live log it is incredibly useful
You don't need to try and track a rule by a number that keeps changing as rules are added or deleted, simply track the rule name.
This feature is available in other UTM and firewall products. From someone who's used the feature for many year it is definitely something I miss in the UTM
This feature is completed as part of XG Firewall that has been released on November 9th 2015.
I agree, and had requested it six(!) years ago: http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/201483-networking-protection-packet-filter-rule-labellin
Could an admin join these two requests, please?
yes, that would be nice, push

The same for NAT and other rules too
It is great to have the fwrule field in the Packet Filter log, but rule numbers sometimes change, and then it becomes very difficult to search the older logs for a match on a given rule. It would be a lot easier if there was an option to name a rule and this name was logged in either the fwrule field or a new rulename field.
