SonicOS 7 Rules and Policies

About App Rules Policies

SonicOS provides the following ways to create App Rules policies and control applications in your network:

  • POLICY | Rules and Policies > App Rules – The POLICY | Rules and Policies > App Rules page provides a way to create an App Rules policy. Policies created using App Rules are very targeted because they combine a match object, action object, and possibly an email address object into a policy. For flexibility, App Rules policies can access the same application controls for any of the categories, applications, or signatures available on the POLICY | Rules and Policies > App Control page. The OBJECT > Match Objects page provides a way to create Application List objects, Application Category List objects, and Application Signature List objects for use as match objects in an App Rules policy. The Match Objects page is also where you can configure regular expressions for matching content in network traffic. The OBJECT > Action Objects pages allows you to create custom actions for use in the policy.
  • POLICY | Rules and Policies > App Control – The POLICY | Rules and Policies > App Control page provides a different way to create an application control policy. For more information, see Configuring App Control.
  • App Rule Guide – The App Rule Guide provides safe configuration of App Rules policies for many common use cases, but not for everything.
