The policy selected when an environment is first created can be modified. In an environment, policy settings are managed from the Configuration tab.
There are 3 ways to do this:
- Select a different pre-existing policy: In the Policy field, a different pre-existing policy can be selected to be applied to the environment.
- Turn the automatic suspension rule on or off: The Auto suspend toggle will indicate whether the auto suspend rule is applicable, based on the selected policy. If this toggle is changed, the new rule relating to the automatic suspension of VMs will override that of the pre-existing policy. For example, if the selected policy includes auto suspend, the toggle will display 'On'. If the toggle is subsequently changed to 'Off', the auto suspend will no longer apply but the other policy settings will still apply. Note: If the auto suspend is turned off, you will be required to complete the Weekly schedule section (outlined below).
- Set a weekly schedule: In the Weekly schedule section, a schedule can be set for one or more days of the week, in a particular timezone. The schedule will determine at which times on what days the VMs will be available/functional for use. First enter the required Timezone, select the days of the week, and enter start and stop times for each selected day. If the Notify environment owner when scheduled action occurs is selected, the environment owner will receive an email at the start time of each selected day.
