Add multiple fw rule with UCI

uci add firewall rule
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].src='xxxxc'
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].target='xxxxx'
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].proto='xxxxxx'
uci set firewall.@rule[-1].dest_port='xxxxx'

uci add firewall rule
uci set firewall.@rule[-2].src='xxxxx'
uci set firewall.@rule[-2].target='xxxxx'
uci set firewall.@rule[-2].proto='xxxxx'
uci set firewall.@rule[-2].dest_port='xxxx'

uci add firewall rule
uci set firewall.@rule[-3].src='xxxxx'
uci set firewall.@rule[-3].target='xxxxxx'
uci set firewall.@rule[-3].proto='xxxxx’
uci set firewall.@rule[-3].dest_port='xxxx'

uci commit firewall

This code is an example of the problem!
If I want in a script to add three firewall rules in one go should I then have index -1, -2 and -3 as above or should I have index -1 on all?

The actual result with his code was that the rule with index -3 was the only one written in the firewall config file and two more rule headlines without any included rules was also written in the config file!?

Or do need to run “commit” between each -1 rule?
