To create a staging policy
Provide the following information:
|Name||Name for the policy. The policy names must be unique. In an environment with tenants, the policy names must be unique for a single tenant. It is a mandatory field.|
|Description||(Optional) A brief description about the policy|
|Enable policy||Indicates whether the policy is enabled or disabled. By default, the policy is enabled. If you disable a policy when you create it, the policy configurations are not applied to the BMC PATROL Agents and the Infrastructure Management Servers. If you disable any existing policy, the policy configurations are removed from the BMC PATROL Agents and the Infrastructure Management Servers, where the policy was applied.|
|Associated User Group||Name of the user group that is associated with the BMC PATROL Agents as defined in the Authorization Profile or in the PATROL Agent ACLs. The policy is applicable to these PATROL Agents.|
Specify whether this policy is to be shared with the users across the associated user group or not. The shared policy can be viewed in READ-ONLY mode by other users of the associated user group.
|Precedence||Priority of the policy. Based on the precedence number you configure, the configuration is applied on the BMC PATROL Agents and Infrastructure Management Servers.|
The precedence number ranges from 0 to 999. The configuration from a policy with a higher precedence overrides the configuration from a policy with a lower precedence.
The default value is 999. A lower number indicates a higher precedence. It is a mandatory field.
Configure the condition to select the BMC PATROL Agents on which you want to apply the policy. For information about configuring the condition, see To select an agent or multiple agents.
The staging policy is applicable only when the BMC PATROL Agent configuration request comes through a staging Integration Service.
If you have selected Integration Service Cluster, you have the option to create a new cluster. Click New to create a new cluster. For more information about creating a cluster, see Adding a cluster.
