If the policy that is associated with your cloud desktop cannot meet your business requirements, you can modify the configurations of the policy. This topic describes how to modify the configuration items of a policy.


The policy that you want to modify is a custom policy.
Note System policies cannot be modified. If your cloud desktop is associated with a system policy that cannot meet your business requirements, you can disassociate the policy from your cloud desktop and associate another policy with the cloud desktop. For more information, see Change the policy associated with a cloud desktop.


  1. Log on to the EDS console.
  2. In the top navigation bar, select a region.
  3. In the left-side navigation pane, click Policy Management.
  4. On the Policy Management page, find the policy that you want to modify and click Change Policy in the Actions column.
  5. In the Change Policy panel, reconfigure the policy.
    You can modify the policy name and reconfigure basic configuration items, such as USB redirection and watermarks. You can also reconfigure the logon methods, the security group rules, the domain blacklist and whitelist, and the whitelist of IP addresses that the EDS client can use to access cloud desktops. For more information about each configuration item, see Create a policy.
  6. Click OK.


After you modify the configuration items of the policy, the new configurations take effect on the cloud desktop that is associated with this policy. The new configurations on security group rules and the domain blacklist and whitelist take effect immediately. Other configurations take effect the next time you log on to the cloud desktop.
