Creating IPS Policy Templates


Use the IPS Policy Templates page to configure intrusion prevention system (IPS) policy templates. Juniper Networks provides predefined policy templates that you can use as a guideline for creating policies. Each template is set of rules of a specific rulebase type. You can modify the template either by using the Advance option in the IPS Policy page or cloning the template. This approach allows you to make changes to the policy and to avoid future issues due to changes in the policy templates.

Before You Begin

To configure an IPS policy template:

  1. Select Configure > IPS Policy > Policy Template.
  2. Click Create.
  3. Complete the configuration according to the guidelines provided in the Table 1.
  4. Click OK.

A new IPS policy template with your configurations is created. After you create the policy template, add rules in one or more rulebases to select that policy template as the active policy template on your policy. See Creating IPS Policy Rules. You can use this policy template in IPS policies. To enable the IPS policy, apply it to a domain; see Assigning Policies and Profiles to Domains.
