If you are a Requestly user, you already know there are 7 different types of rules that you may create to override default behavior of network requests in a webpage. And to achieve some particular use-case, you might have created one or more of these rules.

Great! But over time, as you create more and more rules, the list becomes too large to manage.

Looking for a way to organize them into logical groups and enable/disable in one go?

Well! We are really excited to introduce a new feature in Requestly – Rule Groups.

It allows you to:

  • create new group
  • create rule within a group
  • move existing rules to a group
  • enable/disable group and all its rules in one action
  • share/export/import a group of rules
  • ungroup existing rules in group
  • delete group and its rules
  • rename a group

Through this document, you will learn how “Groups” can be used to manage your rules better.
