Change the Order of Rules

The order that rules are displayed is the same as the order in which traffic is compared to the rules. The proxy compares traffic to the first rule in the list and continues in sequence from top to bottom. When traffic matches a rule, the Firebox performs the related action. It performs no other actions, even if the traffic matches a rule later in the list.

To change the sequence of rules in a proxy action, from Fireware Web UI:

  1. Select the rule to change.
  2. Click Up or Down to move the rule up or down in the list.

To change the sequence of rules in a proxy action, from Policy Manager:

  1. To see the advanced view of rules, click Change View.
  2. Select a rule to change.
  3. Click Up or Down to move the rule up or down in the list.
