You can configure Business Policy rules using the Business Policy tab in the Profile Configuration dialog. Optionally, at the edge-level, you can also override the Profile Business Policy rules.

Note: If you are logged in using a user ID that has Customer Support privileges, you will only be able to view SD-WAN Orchestrator objects. You will not be able to create new objects or configure/update existing ones.

Based on the business policy configuration, VMware examines the traffic being used, identifies the Application behavior, the business service objective required for a given app (High, Medium, or Low), and the Edge WAN Link conditions. Based on this, the Business Policy optimizes Application behavior driving queuing, bandwidth utilization, link steering, and the mitigation of network errors.

The following screenshot shows the Business Policy rules listed in order of highest precedence. Network traffic is managed by identifying its characteristics then matching the characteristics to the rule with the highest precedence. A number of rules are predefined and you can add your own rules to customize your network operation by clicking the New Rule button. For steps to create a new business policy rule, see Create Business Policy Rules.

Business Policy Rules are now Segment aware. All Segments available for configuration are listed in the Configure Segment drop-down menu.

When you choose a Segment to configure from the Configure Segment drop-down menu, the settings and options associated with that Segment appear in the Configure Segments area. Global Segment [Regular] is the default segment.

For more information about Segmentation, see Configure Segments and Configure a Profile Device.

Note: You can move your configured rules up or down in the list of rules to establish precedence by hovering over the numeric value at the left side of the rule and moving the rule up or down.  If you hover over the right side of a rule, click the  – (minus) sign next to the rule to remove it from the list or the + (plus) sign to add a new rule.
