Edit Policy Walkthrough

The top of your policy has 3 important fields:

  • Name: Make this human readable, something your team would understand months or years down the road.
  • Enable Policy: Policies are automatically enabled upon creation. To complete an unfinished policy at a later time, uncheck this field and save.
  • Category: Info, Warning, or Critical.
Category Color Description
Info Blue The Info category indicates that a policy has been violated, but the anomalous behavior is not critical.
Warning Yellow The Warning category indicates that a policy has been violated, and there will likely be a more critical event in the future.
Critical Red The Critical category indicates that a policy has been violated, and the cause of the event should be addressed quickly.
