Activate a Cloudlets policy version

Now that you have a Cloudlets policy that contains rules, you have to activate it on the ​Akamai​ network. Keep in mind you need to activate the policy to use it with a chosen property.


Activation for Shared Policy

Shared Policy functionality significantly simplifies Cloudlets activation. Once a Shared Policy is activated, the Shared Policy is available and fully usable for an unlimited number of properties. Before Shared Policy functionality, you had to activate a policy each time you wished to use it for another property. Also, if you activate any Shared Policy, there is an option to deactivate it.

You can also activate from the Cloudlets Policies, Policy Details, and Version Details screens in Cloudlets Policy Manager.
