Description of rules shift when a new firewall rule added



  • 1- System Logs, Settings, Filter Descriptions - pick "Display as column"
    2- System Logs, Firewall (Capture the screen)
    3- Add a new firewall rule
    4- Wait for firewall to generate any new log.
    5- Check Firewall rules,
    6- You will see that the rule descriptions on the columns are wrong

    I will try to upload screenshots when I reproduce it again.



  • The logs reference the PF rule number, which changes if you add rules, but doesn't that change the logs from before the rule change. There is no historical record of previous rule numbers, hence that's the expected behavior.
