Policies option in Left navigation menu allows user to land in Policies- Marketplace. A sample screenshot
is shown below:


The tabs at the top represent the scope of the policies. You can see 2 tabs: Marketplace and Shared.

Marketplace

CoreStack provides a wide range of pre-defined policies which can help in realizing multiple use cases. The marketplace lists the policies available across multiple clouds. These are pre-loaded for all subscriptions and are FREE to be executed on-demand or scheduled.

These policies are available across all tenants and are usually created by the Product Administrator. In our SaaS version, it is managed by CoreStack. In on-premise installations, it will be managed by the on-site administrator.

Tip: These policies have the scope value set to Global.

Shared

These policies have been created by users within the tenant. These are available only for users within the tenant. You can add more policies or edit/delete existing policies in this tab based on your role and access policies.

Tip: These policies have the scope value set to Tenants.

Search and Filter

CoreStack offers search and filter functions to help quickly look for the policies you need to execute. The Search bar is available just above the policies list. To Filter Policies, you can click on the “Filter” icon placed to the right end above the templates list

The Text Search helps you search using any string available in the following fields:

  • Name of the Policy
  • Description of the Policy
  • Engine Type
  • Classification
  • Service

The text search is thus quite useful in refining your search results based on any little information you have on the preferred result set.

CoreStack also offers Filters to help you narrow down the list of policies by using one or a combination of filters. On clicking the Filter icon, you will see the list of Filter options available as shown below. Select the preferred options and click on “Apply Filter” button at the bottom of this box.

Tip: Use the Reset button to quickly remove all selected filters and view all results.

Once you decide on a policy that you would like to try out, you can execute it on-demand or schedule it for a one-time or recurring execution(s) in future.
