Update Redirection PolicyDescription
Create or update redirection policy
Timestamp of resource creation
ID of the user who created this resource
Timestamp of last modification
ID of the user who last modified this resource
The server will populate this field when returing the resource. Ignored on PUT and POST.
Protection status is one of the following: PROTECTED - the client who retrieved the entity is not allowed to modify it. NOT_PROTECTED - the client who retrieved the entity is allowed to modify it REQUIRE_OVERRIDE - the client who retrieved the entity is a super user and can modify it, but only when providing the request header X-Allow-Overwrite=true. UNKNOWN - the _protection field could not be determined for this entity.
The _revision property describes the current revision of the resource. To prevent clients from overwriting each other’s changes, PUT operations must include the current _revision of the resource, which clients should obtain by issuing a GET operation. If the _revision provided in a PUT request is missing or stale, the operation will be rejected.
Schema for this resource
Link to this resource
Indicates system owned resource
- Distributed Firewall - Policy framework provides five pre-defined categories for classifying a security policy. They are “Ethernet”,“Emergency”, “Infrastructure” “Environment” and “Application”. There is a pre-determined order in which the policy framework manages the priority of these security policies. Ethernet category is for supporting layer 2 firewall rules. The other four categories are applicable for layer 3 rules. Amongst them, the Emergency category has the highest priority followed by Infrastructure, Environment and then Application rules. Administrator can choose to categorize a security policy into the above categories or can choose to leave it empty. If empty it will have the least precedence w.r.t the above four categories.
- Edge Firewall - Policy Framework for Edge Firewall provides six pre-defined categories “Emergency”, “SystemRules”, “SharedPreRules”, “LocalGatewayRules”, “AutoServiceRules” and “Default”, in order of priority of rules. All categories are allowed for Gatetway Policies that belong to ‘default’ Domain. However, for user created domains, category is restricted to “SharedPreRules” or “LocalGatewayRules” only. Also, the users can add/modify/delete rules from only the “SharedPreRules” and “LocalGatewayRules” categories. If user doesn’t specify the category then defaulted to “Rules”. System generated category is used by NSX created rules, for example BFD rules. Autoplumbed category used by NSX verticals to autoplumb data path rules. Finally, “Default” category is the placeholder default rules with lowest in the order of priority.

Description of this resource
Defaults to ID if not set
Unique identifier of this resource
ID of the user who last modified the lock for the secruity policy.
SecurityPolicy locked/unlocked time in epoch milliseconds.
Indicates whether a security policy should be locked. If the security policy is locked by a user, then no other user would be able to modify this security policy. Once the user releases the lock, other users can update this security policy.
Intent objects are not directly deleted from the system when a delete is invoked on them. They are marked for deletion and only when all the realized entities for that intent object gets deleted, the intent object is deleted. Objects that are marked for deletion are not returned in GET call. One can use the search API to get these objects.

The type of this resource.
Redirection rules that are a part of this RedirectionPolicy. At max, there can be 1000 rules in a given RedirectPolicy.
The list of group paths where the rules in this policy will get applied. This scope will take precedence over rule level scope. Supported only for security policies.
This field is used to resolve conflicts between security policies across domains. In order to change the sequence number of a policy one can fire a POST request on the policy entity with a query parameter action=revise The sequence number field will reflect the value of the computed sequence number upon execution of the above mentioned POST request. For scenarios where the administrator is using a template to update several security policies, the only way to set the sequence number is to explicitly specify the sequence number for each security policy. If no sequence number is specified in the payload, a value of 0 is assigned by default. If there are multiple policies with the same sequence number then their order is not deterministic. If a specific order of policies is desired, then one has to specify unique sequence numbers or use the POST request on the policy entity with a query parameter action=revise to let the framework assign a sequence number
Stateful or Stateless nature of security policy is enforced on all rules in this security policy. When it is stateful, the state of the network connects are tracked and a stateful packet inspection is performed. Layer3 security policies can be stateful or stateless. By default, they are stateful. Layer2 security policies can only be stateless.
Opaque identifiers meaningful to the API user
Ensures that a 3 way TCP handshake is done before the data packets are sent. tcp_strict=true is supported only for stateful security policies.
