Severity: 3-Major


In cases where a staging period was started, but no traffic passed through security policy, you might want to reset the staging period when traffic starts, but there is no option to do so.


There is a suggestion to enforce the signature before any traffic can influence this decision.


Staging enabled for signatures in policy.


If all signatures are staged, you can enforce them all, and then enable staging again. Note: Apply policy is required between actions.

Fix Information

Added option to reset the staging period for all or specific signatures. In modal windows shown after clicking 'Change properties...' on the Policy Signatures screen, when 'No' is not selected for 'Perform Staging', the system presents a checkbox: Reset Staging Period.
