Firewall rules are enforced in the order in which they appear in the firewall list. An organization administrator can change the order of the rules in the list.

When you add a firewall rule to an organization virtual datacenter network, the new rule appears at the bottom of the firewall rule list. To enforce the new rule before an existing rule, reorder the rules.


Verify that a routed organization virtual datacenter network with two or more firewall rules is in place.


  1. Click Administration and select the organization virtual datacenter.
  2. Click the Org VDC Networks tab, right-click the organization virtual datacenter network name, and select Configure Services.
  3. Click the Firewall tab.
  4. Drag the firewall rules to establish the order in which the rules are applied.
  5. Click OK.
