Working With Firewalls and Policies

Learn how to create and manage your network firewalls and policies.

The two primary components of the Network Firewall service are firewalls and policies. Each firewall requires at least one attached policy to work. Firewalls can share policies.

For the purposes of access control, you must specify the compartment where you want the network firewall or policy to reside. Consult an administrator in your organization if you're not sure which compartment to use. For information about compartments and access control, see Managing Compartments.

To use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Network Firewall, you must be given access in a policy . If you try to perform an action and get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, confirm with your administrator the type of access you've been granted and which compartment  you should work in. See Network Firewall Identity and Access Management (IAM) Policies for more information.
