Traffic Policy Reorder

I am on version 16.1.0 and I am trying to reorder the rules in a traffic policy. I create the draft policy and go into the traffic policy, but when i drag a rule to a new position the rule does not move. the circle with the slash shows cannot perform this action.

 

According to the documentation, just have to be in a draft policy and drag and drop. So is there a database setting that needs to be changed to allow this to happen. is the documentation missing additional step that must be performed in order to allow this operation.

Hello sgnormo, I'm relying on my memory, hope this information will be accurate enough..

 

As far as I can remember you should be able to reorder statements as you said, by drag and drop.

Check the following:

  • What's the policy strategy? Maybe if it's "all matching rules" it'll be disabled since order won't really matter
  • Is this in a configuration partition? Are you using "ALL" partition view by any chance? Make sure to move in correct partition view
  • What's your user privilege? Operations might be limited for non-admin roles

 

Also, there's built-in help in "Help" menu once you're in the policy configuration view. Check what's stated for "IDs" .. or whatever the rule ID is called

 

Hope this helps

i don't see the help. you are right, should just be able to drag/drop within the draft policy. opened a ticket with f5 to see what they say.

Help will be always available at the very top of the menu, and displays info related to the menu section you're browsing

The answer is quite simply. when the mouse is hovering over a rule a group of dot's shows up left of the rule number. these dots color blends into the background of the web page making it easy to over look. So to reorder a rule, put the mouse pointer of the dots and drag and drop.
