Create custom lists for use in playbook comparisons

A custom list is a collection of values that you can use in a playbook, such as a list of banned countries, or blocked or allowed IP addresses. Custom lists are used to save information in a visual format that can be used to make decisions or track information about playbooks. In your Filter and Decision blocks, compare parameters against all the values in a custom list, rather than having to configure each comparison in the playbook.

See Example of using a custom list in a filter for an example of how to use a custom list in a playbook.
