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

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