Create a Cloudlet policy

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


A Cloudlet policy is not required when EdgeWorkers is used to configure Virtual Waiting Room.

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.
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.
Contract AssociationThis field shows the number of available waiting rooms remaining for the selected contract.

The Contract Association field is applicable for Virtual Waiting Room.
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 don't need to activate a Shared Policy each time you wish to use it with another property, saving time and effort.

The Use Shared Policy field is applicable for:
- API Prioritization
- Audience Segmentation
- Edge Redirector
- Forward Rewrite
- Phased Release
- Request Control
- Virtual Waiting Room (Beta)

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


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.
