The IDP rule-matching algorithm starts from the top of the rulebase and checks traffic against all rules in the rulebase that match the specified match conditions. You determine the sequence in which rules are applied to network traffic by placing them in the desired order. When you add a rule to the rulebase, it is placed at the end of the existing list of rules. To place a rule in any other location than at the end of the rulebase, you insert the rule at the desired location in the rulebase.
