Property and Cloudlet policy considerations

Here are some things you should be aware of before working with Cloudlets:

GeneralYou can associate a Cloudlet policy and all of its versions with either a single property or multiple properties.
Property Manager behavior
  • You can add different types of Cloudlet behaviors to the same property.

  • You can have multiple instances of the same Cloudlet behavior on a single property, but only if the behaviors are in different rules.

  • When a property contains multiple instances of a single Cloudlet behavior, each instance may reference a different Cloudlet policy.

  • If a property includes multiple Cloudlet behaviors, you can select a different Cloudlet policy for each behavior, or use the same policy for all behaviors.
  • Activation
  • While the legacy policy type requires activation each time you wish to reuse it for another property, a Shared Policy only has to be activated once. It is recommended you use Shared Policy type whenever possible.

  • For its associated properties, a Cloudlet policy may have different versions active on different networks.

  • When you activate a Cloudlets policy version, it is active for all associated properties on the selected network.

  • Note: A Shared Policy is automatically associated with all of the properties in the selected group.
