Objects > Service Groups

To simplify the creation of security policies, you can combine services that have the same security settings into service groups. To define new services, refer to Objects > Services.
The following table describes the service group settings:
Service Group Settings
Description
Name
Enter the service group name (up to 63 characters). This name appears in the services list when defining security policies. The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
Shared
Select this option if you want the service group to be available to:
  • Every virtual system (vsys) on a multi-vsys firewall. If you clear this selection, the service group will be available only to the Virtual System selected in the Objects tab.
  • Every device group on Panorama. If you clear this selection, the service group will be available only to the Device Group selected in the Objects tab.
Disable override (Panorama only)
Select this option to prevent administrators from overriding the settings of this service group object in device groups that inherit the object. This selection is cleared by default, which means administrators can override the settings for any device group that inherits the object.
Service
Click Add to add services to the group. Select from the drop-down or click Service at the bottom of the drop-down and specify the settings. Refer to Objects > Services for a description of the settings.
