You can edit only the user-defined edge firewall rules and make limited changes to the system-generated default firewall rule.


  1. Log in to the vSphere Web Client.
  2. Click Networking & Security > NSX Edges.
  3. Double-click an NSX Edge.
  4. Click Manage > Firewall.
  5. Select the rule to edit.
    Note: You cannot edit the following types of rules in the NSX Edge Firewall user interface:
    • Internal rules (for example, auto-plumbed rules that enable the control traffic to flow for Edge services.)
    • Predefined distributed firewall rules that are applied to the edge. These firewall rules are defined in the Firewall user interface (Networking & Security > Security > Firewall).
  6. Make the required changes and click Save or OK.
  7. Click Publish Changes.
