Creating an Address

The next step is to create an Address. You can do this via the GUI (Creating an Address via the GUI) or the CLI (Creating an address via the CLI). Either way, take note of the following:

  • You will create an "Address" which is used as an address group or single address to be used for source/destination of firewall policies. "Address" is based on IP addresses. The Address contains IP addresses of OCI instances that are running.
  • No matter what changes occur to the instances, SDN Connector populates and updates the changes automatically based on the specified filtering condition so that administrators do not need to reconfigure the Address content manually.
  • Appropriate firewall policies using the Address are applied to the instances that are members of it.
