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 Type

Required. Select the Cloudlet you are configuring.

Note: For Virtual Waiting Room, select the Visitor Prioritization with Use FIFO Waiting Room set to On.

Policy Name

Required. Enter a unique name for the policy. Policy names can include alphanumeric characters and underscores.


Required. Enter a meaningful description for this policy.

Group Association

Required. Choose an associated group from the drop-down list.

Use FIFO Waiting Room

Required. For Visitor Prioritization and Virtual Waiting Room.

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 legacy Policy

Optional. Determine the activation method for the created policy. If you switch the toggle to the Off position, you enable the preferred usage of Shared Policy (see Cloudlets Terminology to learn more about Shared Policies).

Note: If you want to reuse a legacy 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.

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

Note: Shared Policy is currently only applicable for Edge Redirector, Forward Rewrite and Audience Segmentation.


Not all fields are applicable to each Cloudlet.

  1. Click Create Policy.

    Your policy is created and you will be redirected to the details of its first version.
