Configuring ACL Priority

Management of ACLs is flexible, with configurable priority for dynamic ACLs. This includes ACLs inserted by internal and external applications, as well as those inserted using the CLI. The priority is assigned by a system of zones, and within zones by numeric codes.

Zones are of two types:

To view both System Space and User Space zones, use the show access-list zone command.

The following table shows the priority of System Space zones and User Space zones together with the default assignments and priority of applications by zone.
