I was working on the IP Tables configuration task and I have completed configuration successfully. However upon completing the task I was notified that the task is unsuccessful saying the change is not persisted in the stapp01 - which is wrong. I believe the validation script is failing. Here is the screenshot for reference.
@Badri, the iptables-save script does not save the rules permanently. This script only parses the rules and print them to stdout. You need to manually write this content to the right file.

I have seen few times using
sudo iptables-save does the trick (at least I saw in my centos VM). I am pretty new to linux and quite possible I did not understand properly. I was referring https://www.booleanworld.com/depth-guide-iptables-linux-firewall/ and it says if we are installing the package
iptables-save should be fine as it internally does the same as
iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables
Are you aware if this is correct?
Edit. Actually I have seen if I have enabled the iptables to start with then
