You can edit and delete only the user-defined firewall rules that were added to an edge gateway. You cannot edit or delete an auto-generated rule or the default rule, except for changing the default rule's action setting. You can change the priority order of user-defined rules.

For details about the available settings for the rule's various cells, see Add an Edge Gateway Firewall Rule Using the Tenant Portal.

Perform any of the following actions to manage the firewall rules:

Disable a rule by clicking the green check mark in its No. cell. The green check mark turns to a red disabled icon. If the rule is disabled and you want to enable the rule, click the red disabled icon.

Edit a rule's name by double-clicking in its Name cell and typing the new name.

Modify the settings for a rule, such as the source or action settings, by selecting the appropriate cell and using the displayed controls.

Delete a rule by selecting it and clicking the x icon located above the rules table.

Hide system-generated rules by using the Show only user-defiend rules toggle.

Move a rule up or down in the rules table by selecting the rule and clicking the up and down arrow icons located above the rules table.

Note

You can move a user-defined rule up or down in the table. The system-generated internal rules are always at the top of the table, the default rule is always at the bottom of the table, and those rules cannot be moved.
