Configure a Default IDP Policy

 

If multiple IPS policies are configured for a session and when policy conflict occurs, the device applies the default IPS policy for that session and thus resolves any policy conflicts.

If a device has multiple IPS policies attached to standard or unified firewall policy rules, then you must configure a default IPS policy. If a device has more than one IPS policies, but is not attached to any standard or unified firewall policy, then a default IPS policy is not mandatory.
