Possible to use external file as part of filter?


I've got certain tags being applied if the message body has certain IP Addresses in it. is it possible to maintain that separate IP address (or username) list in a separate file that the filter can look at along with other filtering actions? my reasoning is it would be easier to maintain a separate file as ip/username changes over time than muck about the regular config file.

You could use a translate filter to tag the events.

that would work, not 100% but better than editing the conf files each time.

I have to revise my answer. Initially I was just looking for a shoot-n-go solution but the translate filter ended up really being just what I needed. thanks!
