Deleting a firewall policy

To delete a firewall policy, perform the following procedure.

Deleting a rule group, TLS inspection configuration, or firewall policy

When you delete a rule group, TLS inspection configuration, or a firewall policy, Amazon Network Firewall checks to see if it's currently being referenced. A rule group and TLS inspection configuration can be referenced by a firewall policy, and a firewall policy can be referenced by a firewall. If Network Firewall determines that the resource is being referenced, it warns you. Network Firewall is almost always able to determine whether a resource is being referenced. However, in rare cases, it might not be able to do so. If you need to be sure that the resource that you want to delete isn't in use, check all of your firewalls or firewall policies before deleting it. Note that policies that have associations can't be deleted.
