After you create a policy, you can modify, clone, or delete the policy based on your business requirements. This topic describes how to modify, clone, or delete a policy.

Prerequisites

The policy that you want to modify, clone, or delete must be a custom policy. You cannot modify, clone, or delete system policies.

Modify a policy

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

Procedure

  1. Log on to the EDS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Operations > Policies.
  3. In the upper-left corner of the top navigation bar, select a region.
  4. On the Policies page, find the policy that you want to modify and click Change Policy in the Actions column.
  5. In the Change Policy panel, modify the configurations of the policy based on your business requirements.
    You can modify the policy name and policy configurations. For more information, see Create a policy.
    Important If a policy that takes effect on all CIDR blocks is associated with a cloud desktop, you cannot specify a CIDR block on which the policy takes effect. If you want the policy to take effect on a specific CIDR block, you must disassociate the policy from the cloud desktop and specify the CIDR block on which the policy takes effect. You can also clone the policy or create a policy, and specify the CIDR block on which the new policy takes effect.
  6. Click OK.

Clone a policy

If you want to create a policy whose configurations are similar to an existing policy, we recommend that you clone the existing policy and then modify parameters in the new policy based on your business requirements. The following section describes how to clone a policy.

  1. Log on to the EDS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Operations > Policies.
  3. In the upper-left corner of the top navigation bar, select a region.
  4. On the Policies page, find the policy that you want to clone and click Clone in the Actions column.
  5. In the Clone Policy dialog box, enter a name for the new policy.
  6. Click OK.
    After the policy is cloned, you can view the new policy in the policy list.

    You can modify specific parameters of the new policy and apply the policy to existing or new cloud desktops.

Delete a policy

You can delete a policy that you no longer need. The following section describes how to delete a policy.

Important The policy that you want to delete is not associated with cloud desktops.

Before you delete a policy that is associated with a cloud desktop, you must disassociate the policy from the cloud desktop. For more information about specific operations, see Change the associated policy for a cloud desktop.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the EDS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Operations > Policies.
