Why firewall rules can only put sd wan zones but not sd wan interfaces?

the concept of sd wan is new to me.

So why cant we put physical interfaces?

Because, sdwan rules work with the zone you defined, and added the interfaces in question.

Yes. I read the article. I dont understand WHY sdwan members cannot be added into FW policy though. Why do we need to use zone?

 

It isnt the case for traditional firewall policies.
