The POLICY GUI is a graphical user interface, available via web-access, for creating and managing policies.
The targeted users are those responsible for creating and managing policies that control network operations, including policy based network configuration and auto-corrective actions. This typically includes network and service designers, operations engineers and security experts.
The GUI consists of the Editor, Dictionary, PDP, Push, Roles, Admin and Dashboard Tabs; which provide for an intuitive manner for policy rules to be created, changed, and managed.
The POLICY Editor tab supports the following key functionality:
- Create Policies and Scopes
- Edit, View and Describe Policies
- Rename, Move and Clone Policies
- Switch Versions of Policies
- Delete Policies and Scopes
- List Policies and Scopes
- Export and Import Policies
- Search for Policies
A Scope must exist before a policy can be created. The figure below shows how to add and manage Scopes.
The most important function of the GUI is to facilitate the creation of policies.
The figure below specifies how a policy can be created.
The GUI provides actions (Edit, Clone, Move, Rename, Describe, View etc) to support maintaining
the policy after it has been created. The figure below specifies how to initiate an action.
The next step of the selected action is shown below.
