        // TODO(developer): Set your own default values for these parameters or pass different values when calling this method.
        string projectId = "your-project-id")
    {
        // Initialize client that will be used to send requests. This client only needs to be created
        // once, and can be reused for multiple requests.
        FirewallsClient client = await FirewallsClient.CreateAsync();

        // Make the request to list all firewall rules.
        await foreach (var firewallRule in client.ListAsync(projectId))
        {
            // The result is a Firewall sequence that you can iterate over.
            Console.WriteLine($"Firewal Rule: {firewallRule.Name}");
        }
