Add Apps Directly to a Rule with Policy Optimizer
ACE provides App-IDs for applications that were previously identified as ssl, web-browsing, unknown-tcp, or unknown-udp.
- Go toand then selectPoliciesSecurity.Policy OptimizerNew App ViewerIf the firewall or Panorama has downloaded ACE App-IDs, a number displays next toNew App Viewerin the left navigation window. The screen displays the Security policy rules that match downloaded cloud App-IDs.
- Click the number inApps Seenfor a Security policy rule to see the cloud-delivered applications that matched the rule in theApplications & Usagedialog.
- Select the applications that you want to add to an existing or cloned Security policy rule.
- SelectApplicationsfromCreate Cloned RuleorAdd to Existing Rule, depending on how you want to handle the applications.The maximum number of applications you can clone usingCreate Cloned Ruleis 1,000 applications. If there are more than 1,000 applications that you want to move to a different rule, useAdd to Existing Ruleinstead. If you want to move the applications to a new rule, simply create the rule first () and then use Policy Optimizer to add them to that rule.PoliciesSecurity
- Add the selected applications to a cloned rule or to an existing rule.Create Cloned Rule:
Add Apps to Existing Rule:
- Type theName(the name for the cloned rule, which will appear in the Security policy rulebase immediately above the original rule). The cloned rule has the same action (allow or deny) as the original rule.
- Select whether toAdd container app(default) or only toAdd specific apps seen.When you add the container app, you also add all of the functional apps in that container, including functional apps that have not yet been seen on the firewall. For example, if you add the “facebook” container app, that also adds facebook-base, facebook-chat, facebook-posting, etc., and also any future applications added to the container. The container and its functional apps are subject to the Security policy rule that you are cloning. Selecting the container app essentially future-proofs and automates security for the container’s apps so that you don’t have to manually add new apps in that container to your Security policy.Adding only the specific apps seen means that only the applications that you selected are added to the cloned rule. If new applications in the same container app arrive at the firewall, the cloned rule doesn’t control them and you have to manually decide how to handle the new apps.
- In some cases, the applications that you want to add to a rule require (depend on) other applications to function. In those cases, theCreate Cloned Ruledialog box includesDependent Applications, where you can select whether to add those applications to the cloned rule. Add the dependent applications to the rule to ensure that the selected applications function properly.
