How do I change the priority of the rules in my AWS WAF web ACL?

1 minute read

I want to change the priority of the existing rules within my AWS WAF web access control list (web ACL).


To edit rule priority, complete the following steps:

  1. Open the AWS WAF console.
  2. Go to AWS WAF, and then choose Web ACLs.
  3. For Region, select the AWS Region where you created your web ACL.
    Note: If your web ACL is set up for Amazon CloudFront, then select Global.
  4. Select your web ACL.
  5. Choose Rules, and then select the rule that you want to update.
  6. Choose Edit.
  7. Choose Save rule.
    Note: You don't need to make changes to the rule unless your use case requires changes. You must choose Save rule to access the Set Rule Priority menu.
  8. Under Set Rule Priority, select your rule, and then update its priority:
    To increase its priority, choose Move up.
    To decrease its priority, choose Move down.
    For more information, see Processing order of rules and rule groups in a web ACL.
  9. Choose Save.
