Firewall Manager v2 is a tool within the MyRackspace Portal. This article describes how to delete object-groups, an easy to use feature that groups and sorts like items such as IP addresses, ports, or protocols.
To learn more about the tool, see Firewall Manager v2.
Why should I use an object-group?
Object-groups improve the organization and readability of a firewall’s running configuration. A running configuration that is easy to read and modify reduces the chances for a misconfiguration and increases the ability to troubleshoot issues quickly.
In Firewall Manager v2, object-groups are referred to as IP groups. You can view, create, modify, and delete any object-group on your firewall. For more information, see the following articles:
Delete an object-group
Log in to the MyRackspace Portal by using your username and password.

Select Network > Firewall Manager v2.
In the navigation pane on the left side of the panel, click the firewall for which you want to see object-groups.

Click Delete Group to make a request to remove the object-group.
Enter any additional information in the text box, and then click Submit Ticket.
A ticket is submitted on your behalf to manually remove the object-group and delete any configuration items that reference the group, such as access lists, VPN encryption domains, or even other object-groups. The ticket is automatically forwarded to the appropriate Rackspace Network Security team, and a team member will perform quality checks and confirm with you directly if anything appears to be incorrect.
