    About the Environment Page

    To access this page, click Configure > Environment.

    Use the Environment page to configure and manage the environment variables and its conditions to dynamically change firewall rule actions.

    Every time the environment changes, you do not have to go through the entire rule configuration. Instead, rules are modified dynamically when the environment changes; you are required to only update the value of the variables.
