Creating an address

You can create an address using the GUI or CLI. Either way, the process consists of the following steps:

  1. Creating an address, which is used as an address group or single address to be used for source/destination of firewall policies. The address is based on IP addresses. The address contains IP addresses of AWS instances that are currently running.
  2. When changes occur on the instances, the SDN connector populates and updates the changes automatically based on the specified filtering condition so administrators do not need to reconfigure the address’s content manually.
  3. Appropriate firewall policies using the address are applied to the instances that are members of it.
