Local Traffic Policies configured for First Match mode may not stop executing after the first matched rule.


This may cause Local Traffic Policies to execute an unintended action.


This happens when the first matched rule has no action (i.e. is set to ignore).


Rework the rules in your affected Local Traffic Policies so that every rule has at least one associated action.

Fix Information

Execution of Local Traffic Policies now correctly stops after the first matched rule.
