To provide the background management of your deployments, you set up policies. Each Automation Service Broker policy is a set of rules or parameters that are applied to deployments, freeing the cloud administrator for other tasks.

Any policies that you create in Automation Service Broker are applied to the deployments in Automation Service Broker and in Automation Assembler.

Getting started with policies

To begin creating policies, select Content and Policies > Policies > Definitions. Any policy that you add is applied to current deployments and any new deployments.

To get you started, use the full use cases that are provided for each policy type. The use cases guide you through the process of creating more than one policy. The use case provides contextual explanations of the choices and the desired behavior.

The use cases are followed by more in-depth information about how multiple policies are processed.
