Deleting a firewall policy - AWS Network Firewall

Deleting a firewall policy

To delete a firewall policy, perform the following procedure.

Deleting a rule group or firewall policy

When you delete a rule group or a firewall policy, AWS Network Firewall checks to see if it's currently being referenced. A rule group can be referenced by a firewall policy, and a firewall policy can be referenced by a firewall. If Network Firewall determines that the resource is being referenced, it warns you. Network Firewall is almost always able to determine whether a resource is being referenced. However, in rare cases, it might not be able to do so. If you need to be sure that the resource that you want to delete isn't in use, check all of your firewalls or firewall policies before deleting it. Note that policies that have associations can't be deleted.

To delete a firewall policy

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon VPC console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/vpc/.

  2. In the navigation pane, under Network Firewall, choose Firewall policies.

  3. In the Firewall policies page, select firewall policy that you want to delete.

  4. Choose Delete, and confirm your request.

Your firewall policy is removed from the list in the Firewall policies page.
