Creating and managing policies

Policies in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management can help you control which available resources are used when a user-requested service instance is created in the cloud.

You manage policies through the Service Governor workspace. Policies are based on resource tags. For policy and tag overview information, see Policy management overview.

Before you begin

Each tenant must be mapped to a network container, as described in Mapping tenants to network containers.

Each compute resource pool must be mapped to the appropriate network containers, as described in Mapping resource pools to network containers.

For examples describing how to use tagging and policies, see Tagging recommendations and examples.

To create policies

  1. Create tag groups and tags, as described in Creating tag groups and tags.
  2. Tag objects in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management, as described in Assigning a tag to an object.
  3. Create policies based on tags, as described in Adding and editing policies.
