Use the akamai_cloudlets_policy resource to create and version a policy. For each Cloudlet instance on your contract, there can be any number of policies. A single policy is associated with a single property configuration. Within a policy version you define the rules that determine when the Cloudlet executes. You may want to create a new version of a policy to support a different business requirement, or to test new functionality.


resource "akamai_cloudlets_policy" "example" {
  name          = "policy1"
  cloudlet_code = "ER"
  description   = "policy description"
  group_id      = "grp_123"
  match_rules   = <<-EOF
    "name": "rule1",
    "type": "erMatchRule",
    "useRelativeUrl": "none",
    "statusCode": 301,
    "redirectURL": "",
    "matchURL": "",
    "useIncomingQueryString": false,
    "useIncomingSchemeAndHost": false
    "name": "rule2",
    "type": "erMatchRule",
    "matches": [
        "matchType": "path",
        "matchValue": "/example/website.html",
        "matchOperator": "equals",
