If I creates a machine after a firewall, would the firewall apply to that new machine? Assume I use tag.

If there’s currently a firewall targeting the tag “some-machine”, and I later create a new machine with that tag, would the firewall be applied to the machine automatically?

Thank you

Yes I believe that will be the case … I just tested it with an existing firewall and existing droplet - added the tag to the firewall and then I added the tag to the droplet. When I checked the firewall members, that droplet was included.

Hope this helps and good luck!
