You can create a new security policy by cloning an existing one.

To clone a security policy:

  1. From the Cloud Services Portal, click Policies -> Security Policies.
  2. On the Security Policies page, select a policy you want to use as the baseline and click Clone at the top Action bar. The Clone Security Policy wizard appears.
  3. On the General page, complete the following:
    • Name: Enter a name for the security policy. Ensure that you enter a unique name for each security policy. This is a required field.
    • Description: This is inherited from the original policy. You cannot modify this. 
    • Precedence: Enter the precedence order for this policy, or use the arrows in the field to choose the precedence order for the policy. If you do not set a precedence order, the system will set this policy as the last on the list.
    • Geolocation: Toggle the Geolocation switch from Disable to Enable in order to enable the geolocation for the security policy, or accept the default disabled configuration for the security policy to preserve privacy. For more information about geolocation support, see Enabling and Disabling Geolocation for a Security Policy.
