Each access control policy configured in Cloud Firewall is assigned a default priority. You can click Move in the Actions column to change the priority of a policy.

Background information

The priorities determine the order in which the policies take effect. Each access control policy has a unique priority. Number 1 indicates the highest priority.

A larger number indicates a lower priority.

The maximum number of policies allowed depends on the edition of Cloud Firewall. Therefore, the priority range is also different in each edition.
  • In the Pro Edition, you can configure up to 1,000 access control policies. The priority ranges from 1 to 1000.
  • In the Enterprise Edition, you can configure up to 2,000 policies. The priority ranges from 1 to 2000.
  • In the Flagship Edition, you can configure up to 5,000 policies. The priority ranges from 1 to 5000.
Note By default, a new policy is assigned the lowest priority.
