This guide goes over the specifics of creating and managing Ziti Edge Router Policies in the NetFoundry Console. An Edge Router Policy defines which Endpoints can communicate to which Edge Routers to access a NetFoundry Ziti Network. This can be utilized for implementing optimal path strategies for single or groups of endpoints with regards to access on to the NetFoundry Network.
If you're unfamiliar with Ziti, read more about it here.
An Edge Router Policy can be created after your Ziti Network, Endpoints, and Edge Routers have been created. To find information on creating an Endpoint and/or Edge Router in a Ziti Network, please see these documents:
Create Your Ziti Edge Router Policy
To create an Edge Router Policy, navigate to Network Settings → Edge Routers → Manage Edge Router Policies to get the process started. Click the blue plus-sign in the upper right corner to create a new Edge Router Policy.
On the 'Create a New Edge Router Policy' screen, you'll see options for name and attributes, along with a preview of your Endpoints and Edge Routers. A unique name is needed to create an Edge Router Policy. Next, either select from your list of already created attributes, or create a new one. If you have attributes already created, you'll need to click on the field to populate the list of attributes to choose from. When creating a new one, hit 'return' or 'enter' to populate the attribute.
To the right of those options, you'll see a preview of your Edge Routers and Endpoints that are associated with the attributes you've created or selected.
Manage Your Ziti Edge Router Policy
To manage your existing Ziti Edge Router Policy, navigate to Edge Routers and switch over to Manage Edge Router Policies. You can click on an Edge Router Policy row to edit it or use the ellipsis menu at the end of each row to take actions on the individual Edge Router Policy. Use the select bubbles in the first column of the table to select multiple Edge Routers for bulk delete.
When editing an existing Edge Router Policy, the screen will look the same as the 'Create a New Edge Router Policy' screen, except that you'll click 'Update' to finish editing instead of create.
