The policy templates menu provides a list of default templates available to be used during Cloud Assembly creation. The policy template list contains both the predefined and user-defined templates. The policy templates have the following details.
|Name||Pre-defined / User-defined name of the policy template|
|Protection frequency type||The frequency type defined for the policy, like Fifteen minutes, Hourly, Daily, Monthly, etc.,|
|Protection Scheduled||The frequency interval of the policy along with the selected time zone|
|Applied Assemblies||List of all the cloud assemblies which have applied this particular policy template. The policy template has a “Delete” option in the “Settings” if there are no applied assemblies for that policy.|
|Primary count||The number of snapshots retained per storage volume in the primary region. Appranix retains the given number of latest snapshots in the primary region. A count of minimum 3 is mandatory.|
|Replication retention count||The number of snapshots retained per storage volume in the recovery region. Appranix retains the given number of latest snapshots in the recovery region. A count of minimum 3 is mandatory.
Note: The recovery region replication and retention are limited based on the cloud provider. Cloud providers with global snapshots access will ignore this setting.
