  1. In the navigation pane, click Devices & Services.
  2. Select the FTD device that you want from the list.
  3. In the Management pane on the right, click Policy. The existing rules of the device appear. 
  4. Perform the following based on your requirement: 
    • To create Top rules, select consecutive rules starting from the first rule at the top.
    • To create Bottom rules, select consecutive rules that include the last rule at the bottom.
  5. In the Actions pane on the right, click Create Ruleset.
    Note: Your selection must include the first or last rule for the Create Ruleset link to be clickable.
  6. Specify a name in the Ruleset Name field and click Create.
    The corresponding ruleset is created in the device.

You can continue creating ruleset using the remaining rules in the device.
