    • Click a policy name to edit the settings.


      Some settings in the default policy are not configurable.

  3. Click the Status toggle to enable or disable the submission policy.
  4. Type a policy name.
  5. Type a description for the policy.
  6. Specify the submitters for the policy. Select one or more entries from the Submitters drop-down list.
  7. Under Submission Rules, configure the submission settings.
    1. Do one of the following:
      • Click Add to create a new entry.

      • Click an image name to edit the settings.

    2. Select an image.
    3. For Submission Settings, select one of the following options and configure the required settings:

        Click >> or << to move the selected entries between the lists.

      • Use the submission settings of another image: Select this option to use the same submission settings from the image you select.

        • You can only share submission settings between images with the same platform. For example, a Windows 7 image can use the submission settings from a Windows 10 image but not from a Red Hat 7.x image.

        • In the drop-down list that appears, the system displays only images with the same platform type in the list.
