Configure a cloud policy rule

After you create a policy, configure as many rules as necessary. Rules are comprised of conditions and actions.

Before you begin

  • Role required: sn_cmp.cloud_governor
  • Configure a cloud policy.


  1. Open a cloud policy.
  2. On the Rules related list, click New.
  3. On the Policy Rule form, enter a descriptive Rule Name and a number that specifies the Order of Execution when you configure multiple rules for this policy. The rule with the lowest order number is run first.
  4. Right-click the form header and select Save.

What to do next

Configure an condition (optional) and at least one policy action (mandatory). The action is what is executed when the condition is met and the trigger for the policy occurs.
