You can specify a protocol match for a firewall rule in this command, or specify a match by application name using the security application firewall name <name> rule <rule-number> name <app-name> command. Use a protocol rule if you want to match any applications that use that protocol, and use an application rule if you want to match only a specific named application.

Use the set form of this command to specify match by application protocol for a firewall application rule.

Use the delete form of this command to delete match by application protocol for a firewall application rule.

Use the show form of this command to display application protocol match for a firewall application rule.
