SonicOS 7 Rules and Policies

User Priority for Access Rules

You now have the ability when configuring a new Access Rule to either:

  • Have the priority set automatically by SonicOS.
  • Insert the rule at the end of the Access Rules table.

When you added a new Access Rule, the rule module decided where to place it in the Access Rule table. The rule module uses an Auto Prioritize algorithm that places the most specific rules at the top. The only way to change the priority was to manually edit the rule and then provide the index of where to place it. Finding the rule in a large table to edit it can be difficult.

The User Priority for Access Rules provides two choices for the priority types of the new rule:

  • Auto Prioritize, which uses the Auto Prioritize algorithm that places the most specific rules on the top of the Access Rules table. This is the default choice.
  • Insert at the end, which indicates to the rule module to place the rule at the end of the Access Rules table, and as a result, makes the new rule easy to locate regardless of the size of the table.

Regardless of which option is chosen, the priority of the new Access Rule can be edited and changed as before.
