    Creating Policies for an IP Service

    Starting from Connectivity Services Director Release 2.0R4 onward, you can create route target policies or protocol policies. These policies can be associated with provider edge protocols and customer edge protocols, and route target. In releases earlier than Connectivity Services Director Release 2.0R4, the Connectivity Services Director application automatically generates route target polices. You can create these policies on the Node Settings page of the Create IP Service Order wizard.

    To create a route target policy, you must select the Policy Based Route Target check box in the Create IP Service Definition wizard. If you have cleared the Policy Based Route Target check box, the Connectivity Services Director application does not generate the policy.

    If you have selected the Policy Based Route Target check box, you have an option to create a policy on the Node Settings page of the Create IP Service Order wizard. If you have not defined a policy in the Create IP Service Order wizard, the Connectivity Services Director application automatically generates the necessary policy.

    Creating PE–CE protocol policies is optional.

    1. On the Node Settings page of the Create IP Service Order wizard, click Create Policy.

      The Policy Settings window appears.

    2. Fill in the following fields in the Policy Settings window:
