A subgroup's policy can inherit only the firewall rules that are enabled in the parent group. When you have inherited the rules, you can disable them, but you cannot modify them. As the new rules are added to the parent group's policy, the new rules are automatically added to the inheriting policy.
When the inherited rules appear in the list, they are shaded in purple. Above the blue line, the inherited rules are added above the rules that you created. Below the blue line, the inherited rules are added below the rules that you created.
