Expire date for firewall rules

Firewall rules should have an optional expiry date. This is useful, if a firewall rule has only been approved for a certain period of time.

With this feature the firewall admin no longer needs to schedule in a separate calendar the removal of a temporary rule and then perform a manual task.

This results in a cleaner ruleset and less effort for the firewall admin.

    I logged on here to post this exact request. I too don't see why we need a manual system to remove 'timed' firewall rules. I also agree with Klaus' post - there should be some sort of email/notification that the rule is about to be switched off.

    NIce request!
    Some times, we need to create rules for accounts that work only for a certain period of time and will help us to better manage this situation.
    These kind of rules can be deleted automatically or disabled.
