I added a rule in the new CF firewalls to filter out if the ‘http.host’ equals one of my subdomains. However since my country was white-listed, the rule wasn’t being triggered. The rule wasn’t triggered even if I specified my current IP. If I am not wrong the whitelist supersedes all additional firewall rules.
It worked fine as soon as the country whitelist was removed. This leads me to believe that there is some sort of segregation in terms of rules being triggered. I say that because I have seen the standard WAF rules working fine(atleast I hope so).
