Rulebase Organization and Flow

L3 Networker

I hate having OCD sometimes because its things like this I struggle with. How are others organizing their rules? Are you grouping them by source IP? Zone? Common Apps? I have "business units" so each business unit has rules. So After each group of business unit rules there needs to be a deny for that "group" So I was starting to organize by source ip, build all the rules and then put a deny from that source to any and move on. But now I am like "But what if other sources need to access those sources but its still a rule for business unit A then it will be in another section based on a different source IP. I don't think there is a right or wrong way to do this and Yes it will be different for all, but I am just trying to get ideas to better help me.

To be honest I have no grouping whatsoever apart from the logical sequence of flow to make things work.

I tend not to mix source IP, source zone or source user in the same policy to make things less complicated but thats just me....

The search filter is my saviour....
