I'm learning how to configure reverse proxy follow this link:https://www.iis.net/learn/extensions/url-rewrite-module/reverse-proxy-with-url-rewrite-v2-and-application-request-routing.
However, I have a doubt that when I create the server farm, ARR will create a default loadbalance rule. Is it necessary for reverse proxy to use this loadbalance rule? Becasue the instruction seems doesn't need the default rule.
Thanks in advance

The example only use one server as the reverse proxy, it is obviously unnecessary to use the loadbalance rule while the arr didn't even use server farm just send response from backend. The default rule is used to map all the request to the server farm. If
there are more complicated architecture, it will make a difference.
This link provide the information about the loadbalance rule:
