You configure service group objects when you have more than one service you want to specify in a rule that matches service. You can group all Web services and group all mail services, for example, if you want to have rules that treat those as groups.

The following policies use service groups:

Basic Steps
  1. Create service objects.

  1. Go to Shared Resources > Service.
  2. Click Service Group.
