Show specific rule in reference links?

    after spending some time working with BASE, i've got something like a feature proposal.
    It's pretty usefull to have the full text string of an alerting rule in mind when analysing its alarms.

    It's not a problem to grep 'em myself, but an integration into the reference link system of base would make it faster and accessable through http(s) without the need of a shell account.

    The SID of a rule is known, and a local file search for (not *in*) the local signature files is implemented as well. I have something like a "grep -r SID <path_to_rules>" in mind, but have no idea how complex the reference system in base really is and how diificult the affordable changes are.

    It's just a proposal anyway ;o)

      Sounds like a decent idea.  The reference system is not very complex.  I can look at this in my spare time or someone with more time is welcome to it. :)

      Hello Chris,

      done in CVS.  You will most probably run into permission problems.  So  I recommend you copy your rules directory directly into the base directory and make it readable and executable for "others".

      Then set the "local_rules_dir" in base_conf.php accordingly.  A "[rule]" should appear as a result.

      Bye, bye
