Create a Cloudlet policy

A Cloudlets policy contains the rules applied when an incoming request matches on criteria you set.

How to

  1. Go to > CDN > Edge logic Cloudlets.

  2. On the Manage Cloudlet Policies screen, click Create New Policy.

  3. On the Create Policy screen, complete the following fields:

Cloudlet TypeRequired. Select the Cloudlet you are configuring.

Note: For Virtual Waiting Room and Visitor Prioritization select the Visitor Prioritization cloudlet type.
- For Virtual Waiting Room, the Use FIFO Waiting Room toggle must be set to On.
- For Visitor Prioritization, the Use FIFO Waiting Room toggle must be set to Off.
Policy NameRequired. Enter a unique name for the policy. Policy names can include alphanumeric characters and underscores.
NotesOptional. Enter a meaningful description for this policy.
Group AssociationRequired. Choose an associated group from the drop-down list.
Use FIFO Waiting RoomRequired. For Visitor Prioritization (set to Off) and for Virtual Waiting Room (set to On).

Note: For Virtual Waiting Room, set Use FIFO Waiting Room to On to enable First In First Out visitor processing. For Visitor Prioritization, set Use FIFO Waiting Room to Off.
Use Shared policyOptional. Determine the activation method for the created policy.

If you keep the toggle to the On position, you enable the preferred usage of Shared Policy (see Cloudlets Terminology to learn more about Shared Policies).
If the toggle is set to the Off position, a non-shared policy (also referred to as a legacy policy) is created.

To reuse a non-shared policy for another property, you are required to activate it each time you link to it. A Shared Policy is activated only once, and can then be linked to an unlimited number of properties. You no longer need to activate a policy each time you wish to use it with another property, saving time and effort.

Shared Policy is currently applicable for Virtual Waiting Room (Beta), Edge Redirector, Forward Rewrite and Audience Segmentation.

Note: You may also activate Shared Policies via API call. See API documentation to learn more about Shared Policies API.
