Set up a Conditional Origin Definition rule

Use the Conditional Origin Definition rule to set up the origins to use with your Cloudlet.

This rule must be a child of the Conditional Origin Group rule.

Note: Although this template includes an Origin Server behavior and a Content Provider behavior by default, only the Origin Server behavior is required.

How to

  1. Verify that you have set up a Conditional Origin Group rule.
    By default, the Conditional Origin Group rule includes two Conditional Origin Definition rules.
  2. From the rules pane, click on the first Conditional Origin Definition rule.
  3. In the Criteria section for the rule, specify the Conditional Origin ID.
    The Cloudlets Policy Manager uses this ID when setting the origin for Cloudlets policies. It can contain alphanumeric characters and underscores.
  4. Set up the Origin Server and Content Provider behaviors as needed for the Conditional Origin.
    Note: If another rule within the property contains a behavior that modifies the origin, that origin-altering behavior may also be applied to your Conditional Origin.
  5. Add any other behaviors that apply to this new Conditional Origin.
  6. If you want to change the rule name to reflect the function of this Conditional Origin:
    1. On the rules pane, select the Conditional Origin Definition you want to rename.
    2. Click the action cog to the right of the rule name.
    3. Select Edit Name.
    4. Edit the rule name and press Enter.
  7. Click Save.
  8. If you are setting up additional Conditional Origins:
    1. Click on the second Conditional Origin Definition rule.
    2. Repeat steps 4 through 7.
  9. If you need to configure more than two Conditional Origins:
    1. On the Edit tab of the Property Manager configuration, select the Conditional Origin Group rule and click Add Rule.
    2. Select Conditional Origin Definition from the list of available rule templates.
    3. Click Insert Rule.
  10. If you've configured all your Conditional Origins:
    1. determine whether you need a purge rule for your Conditional Origins.
    2. activate the property containing the new Conditional Origins
