We accept special character and below 30 characters should be fine. May I know how long of the firewall name you are looking for?


I am not looking for a specific length. My preference is for comments for each rule but without comments we need to give each rule a descriptive name and that can sometimes be long. 30 characters is fine, I just wanted to know what the limit is. Thank you.
