About the Default Profiles for Unified Firewall Policy Page


To access this page, select Configuration > Firewall > Default Settings.

Use this page to view and edit the default settings for unified firewall policies. In a unified firewall policy, dynamic application is used as a match criteria and therefore a separate application firewall is not configured on a device (CPE or next-generation firewall) to allow or block traffic to an application.

The unified firewall takes some time to detect the application in a traffic and act upon it. The default profiles help in providing security during that time.


The unified firewall policy settings are applied on a device only when Junos OS version 18.2R1 or later is installed on the device.

The default settings comprise the following:

  • A UTM profile to define antispam, antivirus, content filtering and web filtering behavior.

  • An SSL proxy profile to define the action to be taken when server certificates are not authenticated.

  • An IPS profile to define the actions to be taken when the traffic matches the attack objects specified in the IPS profile.

  • Reject Settings to define an action when the firewall blocks traffic for a particular application:

    • Take no action

    • Provide a redirect URL to redirect the traffic to another application or URL.

    • Provide a block message to display or log a message indicating that the traffic for the particular application is blocked by the firewall policy.
