Hierarchy Level


Specify IDP policy name.

When you configure a unified policy with a dynamic application as one of the matching condition, the configuration eliminates the additional steps involved in IDP policy configuration. IDP policy configurations are simplified within a unified policy. Configuring source or destination address, source and destination-except, from and to zone, or application is not required with unified policy, as the match happens in the security policy itself.

Required Privilege Level

security—To view this statement in the configuration.

security-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
