createOrUpdatePolicy

Use the createOrUpdatePolicy command to create or update the specified policy directly in the sphere.

Creating or updating a policy might involve the following three steps:

  1. Generate the template settings document using the createSettingsDocument command.

  2. Edit the generated document to provide the specific values required for the policy being created.

  3. Create the policy using the createOrUpdatePolicy command, providing the settings document created in Step 2.

To create a new policy, you need to supply only a template name, type, and name. If the policy requires settings, you must also provide a settings document. You can provide additional information to more precisely identify the source template to specify the initial state of the policy, but these are not required.

To update a policy, you must provide a name, type, the -overwrite flag, and any arguments for elements you want to update. Any values you do not specify remain unchanged. Because the policy name and version identify the policy, you cannot use this command to change either. Instead, create a new policy with the desired name and/or version.

See Security Options in Accessing CLI Commands for information on furnishing login credentials.

You can encrypt passwords using the encryptPassword command.


Application Criteria

When creating or modifying a policy, you can specify a set of criteria to be used in determining the monitored objects to which the policy can be applied. The format of each criterion in the set is as follows:

monitoredObjectType [;query [,{UNION | EXCLUDE}]]+

For detailed information on how to specify criteria visit http://www.oracle.com/support/contact.html or visit http://www.oracle.com/accessibility/support.html if you are hearing impaired.

                            -l admin:abracadabra
