Creating new signatures

William Olmstead


I am trying to create new signatures but running into problems.  On the GUI it just spins when I hit the "OK" button (i am on NS12.1 58.14.nc) so I figured out that there is a cli command to import signatures:


import appfw signatures <src> <name> [-xslt <string>] [-comment <string>] [-overwrite] [-merge] [-sha1 <string>]


but with the above command, I am getting the following.  I assume it is just syntax that I am missing, but can't figure it out.


import appfw signatures local:/root/voiceconfig_af.xml csn-WAF


Nov  9 15:07:25 <local0.warn> x.x.x.x 11/09/2022:15:07:25 GMT nsname02 0-PPE-0 : default APPFW Message 0 0 :  "Failed to download tmp_filepath: url='local:/root/voiceconfig_af.xml', file='/var/download/custom/_tmp.1668006445.689554/csn-waf.tmp' "

To import locally,


  • Copy your signature to /var/tmp/
    • scp nsroot@ip:/var/tmp/voiceconfig_af.xml
  • Execute the following import command,
    •  import appfw signatures local:voiceconfig_af.xml new_obj_name




Thank you for this.  I will keep this command in my back pocket.
