Appending a Policy Block to a Policy Package

Once a Policy Block is created, it can be appended to a Policy Package. After appending the Policy Block to a Policy Package, assigning installation targets and installing the Policy Package to the installation targets, all the policies in the Policy Block are installed to the target.

After a Policy Block is appended to a Policy Package, you can add or remove policies from the Policy Block. You need to append the Policy Block to the Policy Package only once. It is not required to append the Policy Block to the Policy Package again after adding or removing policies from the Policy Block.

To append an existing policy to a Policy Block:
  1. Ensure that you are in the correct ADOM.
  2. Go to Policy & Objects.
  3. Click [Policy_Package_Name]. For example, click default.
  4. Select Policy Block > Append Policy Block.

  5. Select the Policy Block from the drop-down and click OK.

Deleting a Policy Block after it is appended to a Policy Package will automatically remove the Policy Block (and the included policies) from the Policy Package.
