Creating the Firewall policies

A Firewall policy is a grouping of the Firewall rules. We will now create a Firewall policy and add the Firewall rules that we created earlier. The order of the rules in a Firewall policy is important and a different ordering may give you a different result.

A Firewall policy may also be shared between tenants.
