Use the vCloud Director tenant portal to view the list of service groups that are available for use in firewall rules. In this context, a service is a protocol-port combination, and a service group is a group of services or other service groups.

You can view the available service groups using the Grouping Objects page of the vCloud Director tenant portal. The Grouping Objects page is available on both the Services and Edge Gateway screens.

You cannot create service groups using the tenant portal. The set of service groups available for your use is managed by your vCloud Director system administrator.
