Editing a Monitoring Policy

You can update an existing monitoring policy to satisfy changes within your environment.

Before You Begin

Review the following considerations before you edit a monitoring policy:

  • If you rename a policy that is being used in the Log Monitoring application, the data is indexed against the new policy name. Therefore, you will see the old and new policy listed in the Log Monitoring application.
  • When you edit any of the policy properties, the changes affect only the data that is indexed after the policy change.

    Important: If you make incorrect changes and you need to re-index all the data, you must delete and recreate the policy. However, if data that you previously indexed is no longer available, you might need to keep the existing policy even if you create a new one.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Policies and click Monitoring Policies.
  2. Right-click the monitoring_policy, click Edit, and make the necessary changes:




    Opens the Monitoring Policy wizard.


    Changes your monitoring criteria.


    Changes the schedule settings.

    Note: To edit schedules (including the continuous monitoring mode), you must have Edit and Execute permissions. To assign users and grant permissions for a policy, use the Security option.


    Manages user permissions on the monitoring policy. For instructions, see Setting Access Permissions to Monitoring Policies.
