How to use search rules in RM SafetyNet
Published Date : 03 Sep 2015   Last Updated : 10 Jan 2018   Content Ref: TEC4699637  





Procedure

Using search rules
In your establishment's filter lists, you can create your own search rules to allow or deny searches on specific terms. If a match is found between your rule text and a search that a user attempts then the relevant action (allow or deny) is taken.

Note: You cannot use wildcards in search rules.


How to create a search rule
  1. Click the Web Access Policy icon in the menu bar at the top of any page.
  2. Click the 'Your rules' tab.
  3. From the 'List to edit' drop-down menu, select the filter list in which you want to add the new rule and ensure the 'Search rules' tab is selected.
  4. Click Add Search Rule.
  5. In the New Search Rule window, enter the text for the new rule.
    • To set a basic search rule, either enter one or more words separated by spaces (for example sex education) or a phrase in quotes (for example "sex%20education", replacing spaces with %20).
    • Alternatively, if you want to be more precise you can enter search terms in the format argument=value (for example search=games or safe=off), or in the format =value (for example =games).
    • You can enter multiple different rules on separate lines if you want, in order to create a number of rules at the same time - though these rules will all share the same rule type and comment.
    • Select the type of rule: 'Deny access' or 'Allow access'.
  6. Enter a comment if required. Comments can be useful, as you can sort the list of rules on the Comments column. For example, for all rules that you create to deny social networking websites, you could add a comment starting with 'Social Networking'. This would make it easy to re-sort the rules list to group together all such rules.
  7. Click 'Create rule'.

How to edit a search rule
  1. Click the Web Access Policy icon in the menu bar at the top of any page.
  2. Click the 'Your rules' tab.
  3. From the 'List to edit' drop-down menu, select the list that contains the rule you want to edit and under the Show option ensure that 'Search rules' is selected.
  4. Tick the box to select the rule you want to edit and click Edit. (A clickable edit icon is also displayed if you hover over the rule.)
  5. In the Edit Search Rule window, make the required changes to the rule text. You can also edit the type of rule and comment if required.
  6. Click 'Update rule'.

How to delete a search rule
  1. Click the Web Access Policy icon in the menu bar at the top of any page.
  2. Click the 'Your rules' tab.
  3. From the 'List to edit' drop-down menu, select the list that contains the rule you want to delete and under the Show option ensure that 'Search rules' is selected.
  4. Tick the box to select the rule you want to delete and click Delete. (A clickable delete icon is also displayed if you hover over the rule.)
  5. Click OK to confirm the deletion.
