Create firewall security groups based on POOLS

Jun 28, 2019

There is any way to link firewall rules (security groups) based on POOL ? so, when we associate VMs as a member of a specific pool, the same firewall rules (security groups) created on parent pool, should be Inherited by those VMs.

no, there is currently no such feature.
Thanks, if possible, consider this feature for the future releases, would be great!!

feel free to request it over at - I can see how this might be useful, although I am not sure whether pools are the right mechanism for this, or whether a separate mechanism would be better (something like "firewall zones"?)
