Editing a Policy

Administrators can change the information of a policy including the policy name, targets, and settings. Only the policy creator can modify the policy.

Control Manager supports the following changes:

  • Modifying a filtered policy

  • Adding more targets to a specified policy

  • Removing some targets from a specified policy


Control Manager only allows the policy creators to make changes to their own policies. However, the root account can edit every policy in the list.

  1. Navigate to Policies > Policy Management.

    The Policy Management screen appears.

  2. Select the type of product settings from the Product list.

    The screen refreshes to display policies created for the selected managed product.

  3. Click a policy name in the Policy column.

    The Edit Policy screen appears.

  4. Modify the policy.

    Editing the filtering criteria in a filtered policy can affect target allocation. Control Manager may re-assign some targets to other filtered policies, or add additional targets to the current policy.

  5. Click Deploy.

    The changes apply immediately.

    • After clicking Deploy, please wait two minutes for Control Manager to deploy the policy to the targets. Click Refresh on the Policy Management screen to update the status information in the policy list.

    • Control Manager enforces the policy settings on the targets every 24 hours.
