Create local rulestacks with Terraform for firewall manager account.

We have created a distributed firewall using firewall manager and created global rulestacks using the api.


Now we would like to create local rule stacks via terraform but are running into issues as the account was onboarded using firewall manager.


Does anyone know if both local and global rulestacks are supported via the api if the account was onboarded using firewall manager?

Hello @crippste


I hope you are well!  


For FMS policy, there is no local firewall administrator. The local rulestack administrator associates the local rulestacks to NGFW. If the FMS service handshake is successful, any local firewall administrator call must be disabled, and the local rulestack administrator can associate the local rulestack to NGFW.


Have a great day. 


Thanks & Regards,
