Distil Published ACLs Overview

DISTIL PUBLISHED ACLS provides all of the tools you’ll need to manage the ACLs created and curated by Distil (e.g., adding file types to the Static Content Extensions whitelist). You can choose to apply a Distil published ACL to all of your domains. You can also enable or disable automatic updates at any time.


  • Search ACLs – Search across all of your ACLs (including MY ACLS and DISTIL PUBLISHED ACLS) for a specific data point, such as an ACL name, rule value, or a note.
  • Page Select – Browse through the pages of DISTIL PUBLISHED ACLS or jump to a specific page.

    Pagination begins with 11 ACLs.
  • Name – Name of the ACL. The green checkmark icon denotes that the ACL has automatic updates enabled.

Updates Enabled                                 Updates Disabled 

Click an ACL record to manage and update it, including:

  • ACL Settings – Use this dropdown to manage the ACL.
    • Enable Updates by Distil – Enables automatic updates from the Distil-curated ACL. For example, when Distil adds a new extension to the Static Content Extensions whitelist, it is automatically published to the whitelist associated with your domains.

      NOTE: We recommend using this setting to keep up-to-date.

    • Disable Updates by Distil – Disables automatic updates from the Distil-curated ACL (e.g., adding file types to the Static Content Extensions whitelist). 

      NOTE: We do not recommend using this setting, as your ACL will not be current with Distil’s changes.

    • Apply to all Domains – Applies the ACL to all of your protected domains.
    • Remove from all Domains  – Removes the ACL from all of your protected domains.
    • Restore List to Default – Restores the ACL to current defaults. This removes any updates, additions, or deletions you’ve made to the ACL.

  • Export – Select this to download all associated rules for the ACL. Use the exported .CSV to edit and upload associated rules in bulk
  • Associated Rules – Protective rules associated with the ACL, including the type, name, access, and notes. Use this tab to create, upload, or manage associated rules.
  • Associated Paths – Domains and/or specific URLs for pages, content, and API endpoints. Use this tab to add or manage associated paths.
