Services and Service Groups Overview

A service refers to an application on a device. For example, Domain Name Service (DNS). Services are based on protocols and ports used by an application, and when added to a policy, a configured service can be applied across all devices. Services are candidates for firewall policy end-points. The protocols used to create a service include: TCP, UDP, MS-RPC, SUN-RPC, ICMP, and ICMPv6. Contrail Service Orchestration (CSO) also includes predefined, commonly used services, and you cannot modify or delete them.

Once you create a service, you can combine it with other services to form a service group. Service groups are useful when you want to apply the same policy to multiple services, as this enables you create fewer policies.
