Firewall Manager v2 is a tool within the MyRackspace Portal. This article describes how to delete object-groups, an easy to use feature that groups and sorts like items such as IP addresses, ports, or protocols.

To learn more about the tool, see Firewall Manager v2.

Why should I use an object-group?

Object-groups improve the organization and readability of a firewall’s running configuration. A running configuration that is easy to read and modify reduces the chances for a misconfiguration and increases the ability to troubleshoot issues quickly.

In Firewall Manager v2, object-groups are referred to as IP groups. You can view, create, modify, and delete any object-group on your firewall. For more information, see the following articles:

Delete an object-group

  1. Log in to the MyRackspace Portal by using your username and password.

  2. In the top navigation bar, click Select a Product > Dedicated Hosting.

  3. Select Network > Firewall Manager v2.

  4. In the navigation pane on the left side of the panel, click the firewall for which you want to see object-groups.

  5. Under Rules in the navigation pane, click IP Groups.

  6. Scroll through or search the object-group list and click the object-group that you want to delete.

  7. Click Delete Group to make a request to remove the object-group.

  8. Enter any additional information in the text box, and then click Submit Ticket.

A ticket is submitted on your behalf to manually remove the object-group and delete any configuration items that reference the group, such as access lists, VPN encryption domains, or even other object-groups. The ticket is automatically forwarded to the appropriate Rackspace Network Security team, and a team member will perform quality checks and confirm with you directly if anything appears to be incorrect.
