Editing Default Settings for the Unified Firewall Policy

 

Use the Default Profiles for Unified Firewall Policy page to configure the default profile, SSL proxy profile, IPS profile, and reject or redirect URL or message in the unified firewall policy for a tenant. If you enable a default SSL proxy profile for the tenant, CSO sets the default SSL proxy profile for the tenant as the the default SSL profile in the unified firewall policy.

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 default settings are applicable to all the unified firewall policies belonging to a tenant and pushed to all those sites where a firewall policy is deployed.

To configure default settings for the unified firewall policy:

  1. Select Configuration > Firewall > Default Settings in Customer Portal.

    The Default Profiles for Unified Firewall Policy Settings page appears.

  2. Click the Edit button.

    The fields on the page can now be modified.

  3. Complete the configuration according to the guidelines provided in Table 1.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • Click Cancel to cancel the changes.

    • Click OK to save the changes.

      The settings are saved and a confirmation message is displayed.

      You can deploy the changes by editing the unified firewall policy and then redeploying it.
