Drag-and-Drop Virtual Service Policy Reordering

In the Avi UI’s Virtual Service Advanced Setup wizard it is possible to alter the sequence in which policies are executed simply by dragging and dropping them to their preferred position. This article explains how to use the feature, step by step.

Step 1. Navigate to Applications > Virtual Services. Click on Create Virtual Service and select the Advanced Setup wizard.

Step 2. Once you have progressed to step 2, and have created some policies (rules), click down somewhere within the row representing the rule you wish to resequence. It will become highlighted in grey.
