Add a Request Control rule

Cloudlets rules determine what Request Control does when an incoming request meets a set of criteria. You can use Cloudlets Policy Manager to add rules, or you can add them using a CSV file.

  1. Go to > CDN > Edge logic Cloudlets.

  2. On the Cloudlet Policies screen, click the name of the policy you want to add rules to.

  3. On the Policy Details screen, click the version you want to update or click Create New Version.

  4. On the Version Details screen, click Add Rule.

  5. Complete these fields on the Create a Rule screen:
