General rule considerations

When setting up rules for Cloudlets, keep the following in mind:
Category Consideration
Rule evaluation
  • Cloudlets rules are evaluated from first to last, and the first match wins.
  • As a best practice, order your rules so that the ones that will exclude the most incoming requests are towards the top of the list.
  • If an incoming request doesn't trigger a rule, then the Cloudlet does not execute. The request is then evaluated against the property rules.
  • Cloudlets policies do not have child rules.
  • You can add 5000 rules to a Cloudlets policy.
    Note: If your rules aren't working as expected before the 5000 limit, contact support.
Match rules
  • All match types support negation.
  • If you have multiple match criteria in a rule, the criteria are all part of a single logical AND operator.
  • ELSE statements aren't supported.
Versioning
  • When you create a new policy, the system automatically creates version 1 of the policy. This version is empty: it has no description or rules.
  • When cloning a policy, version 1 of the new policy includes rules from the most recent version of the cloned policy.
