In the next few days, we'll be rolling out a change that affects all users of OpenDNS Umbrella. Moving forward, your "Domain Lists" will now become "Destination Lists."
**NOTE: An earlier version of this announcement indicated these lists would be called 'Block/Allow Lists', we've since amended that to Destination List to better describe how this change will work in the future. In addition, the ability to Allow IPs is restricted to a small number of customer and has been omitted from this announcement**
Destination Lists are an update to the traditional Domain Lists you're probably used to seeing. This is a part of an overall effort to improve the way in which you interact with the Dashboard and to make thing easier to use. There's no loss of functionality and no loss of information in your existing Domain Lists; this is a cleaner, simpler way of displaying and managing the information in these lists.
Another big reason for this change is that we're slowly expanding the capabilities of OpenDNS Umbrella and expand the number of things we can enforce and report on. We're also making changes to improve the visibility of your reports and this change plays into that.
As of this writing, the change from Domain Lists to Destination Lists is being rolled out slowly to customers in small iterations. A migration process will take place that maps your existing Domain Lists to Destination Block or Allow lists, depending on how they were configured. The migration is pretty simple:
- if a domain list was set so all domains on that list were to be 'blocked', those domains have been moved into a Destination 'Block List'
- If a domain list was set so all domains on that list were to be 'allowed', those domains have been moved into a Destination 'Allow List'

Some documentation will reference Domain Lists as we move slowly toward full adoption of this feature, but we wanted you to know it's coming. We're excited about this change and we hope you'll like it too—if you have any questions, concerns or comments, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org
