Overriding or Reverting a Security Policy Rule
The default security rules—interzone-default and intrazone-default—have predefined settings that you can override on a firewall or on Panorama. If a firewall receives the default rules from a device group, you can also override the device group settings. The firewall or virtual system where you perform the override stores a local version of the rule in its configuration. The settings you can override are a subset of the full set (the following table lists the subset for security rules). For details on the default security rules, see Policies > Security.
