I hope there is some what of doing this that I've missed.  I'm setting up an older Cisco MARS appliance.  I want to configure rules to kick off an email alert when they are triggered.  So far, the only way that I've found to do this is to set the action individually on each rule...and there are A LOT of rules.

Is there some place that I can set a default action for active rules?

Thanks.

1) Goto the Inspection Rules page
2) Choose the set of rules or choose all rules or choose individually
3) configure the action

It's not letting me select multiple rules.  

Maybe it's a limitation in the software?  We're running an older MARS model, the 50, with version 4.3.5.

Can you perform a select all?  Check out the user guide for 4.2.x? "Configuring a rule to send an action alert"

No option to select all.  The information is the user's guide only applies to one rule at a time, which I can do.

If there is no way to set an action on all rules or a default rule, that's pretty stupid on Cisco's part considering there are over 100 built in rules...

I am going to close this question and request a point refund.  I was, unfortunately never able to find a way to apply actions to multiple rules and because I needed to get this working I ended up setting the actions on each rule individually.

Thanks.
