Create and edit a policy set

Policies containing optimization and transformation configuration settings are typically organized into policy sets. A image policy set contains only image policies, and a video policy set contains only video policies.

A default policy is automatically generated whenever a new policy set is created. You can create as many policy sets and policies as you need on a single contract.

Policy sets are created in one of two ways:

  • By setting Apply Existing Policy Set to No in the Image and Video Manager behavior that you add to your Image and Video Manager rule. This automatically creates a new policy set containing a default policy when the rule is saved.

  • By logging into ‚ÄčAkamai Control Center‚Äč, navigating to ‚ėį > CDN > Image and Video Manager, and using the Policy Manager tools.

Create a policy set

  1. In ‚ÄčAkamai Control Center‚Äč, go to ‚ėį > CDN > Image and Video Manager.

    Image and Video Manager opens to the Policy Manager page.

  2. Select the correct Contract from the list.

  3. Click +Create and select Policy set from the list that appears.

  4. To create your new policy set:

    • Enter a name for the policy set
    • Select Image or Video as the media type
    • Select the appropriate region
    • Select the group that should have access to this policy set, or leave as "All groups on the contract"
    • Click Create

For more information about user groups, see Control user access with granular permissions

You are now ready to create policies in this policy set.
