Applying Policies to Groups

  • Last updated on

Although you can manually apply policies to groups, it is not considered a best practice. Groups are designed for asset management purposes, and manually applying policies does not take advantage of automatic inclusion rules. It is recommended instead that you set up shared site groups, to which you can then apply a service plan. For more information, see Creating Shared Site Groups.

However, if you prefer to set up your monitoring manually using groups, you can follow the steps below to enable group-based monitoring.

For more information about the types of policies in Barracuda Managed Workplace, see Working with Policies and Services.

To manually apply a policy to an existing service group

  1. In Service Center, click Configuration > Groups.

  2. Click the Service Groups tab.
  3. Click the name of the service group to modify.
    If you need to create a service group first, see Creating a Group.
  4. Click the Policies tab.
  5. In the Policies area, click Add.
  6. Select a policy type from the list, and click Add.
    Only policies that were included in Service Center by default, or created manually, are available for selection. For monitoring policies, this also includes monitoring policies that were installed using the Update Center. For more information about installing monitoring policies, see Installing and Importing Monitoring Policies.
  7. Select the check box beside each policy that you want to apply to the service group.
  8.  Click Add.
