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, the new Shared Policy functionality has to be activated only 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: Shared Policy is automatically associated with all the policies in the account.
