There are different types of rules configured through VMware NSX Manager:-

User-defined: User defined rules are created by administrator.

Internal: Rules automatically created by the system to allow control traffic to flow.

Local: Rules specific to an NSX manager instance (in a cross vCenter NSX deployment)

Universal: Rules that span NSX manager instances (in a cross vCenter NSX deployment)

Service Composer: Rules created through Service Composer as part of a defined security policy

Default: Rules that deal with traffic that does not match any other rule

Prerules: Rules created for the Edge firewall through the centralized Firewall tab. Prerules cannot be modified at the Edge level.
