Firewall rule filters should be persistent
If you filter firewall rules, then edit a rule, the filtering is lost and you have to re-apply the filter. This is a nightmare when you need to update 10 different firewall rules. Filtering should be maintained until it is cleared.
17.5.12 and still unusable
edit: fixed in 18.0.1

New to XG coming from Cyberoam (where it is grouped and filter remains). I agree this is very frustrating.
SHOCKED: This idea is posted on 20th Feb 2017, and still Sophos thinks it is not worth adding this feature???
Need this feature on TOP PRIORITY. I have to delete 153 disabled rules. Each rule takes 1-2 mins as GUI need to refresh as well. I need 306 mins (5 hours if I don't take break in between OMG!!!) to clean up my firewall.
WHY WAS THIS NOT THOUGHT WHILE DEVELOPING?

Absolutely agree with this, it get's very frustration very quickly.
Yes please, agree with the nightmare comment especially with a large rule set.

Yes, the filter are useful for a on-time only. If you need to edit multiple rules are plain useless.
