View Rules by Tag Group

View your policy rulebase as tag groups.
View your policy rulebase as tag groups to visually group rules based on the tagging structure you created. In this view, you can perform operational procedures such as adding, deleting or moving the rules in the selected tag group more easily. Viewing the rulebase as tag groups maintains the rule evaluation order, and a single tag may appear multiple times throughout the rulebase to visually preserve the rule hierarchy.
You must first create the tag in order to assign a group tag to a rule. Policy rules that are already tagged on upgrade to PAN-OS 9.0 have the first tag automatically assigned as the Group tag. Before upgrading to PAN-OS 9.0, review the tagged rules in your rulebase to ensure rules are correctly grouped upon upgrade. You must manually edit each tag rule and configure the correct Group tag if your rules are grouped incorrectly after you upgrade to PAN-OS 9.0.
