Policy Template Synchronization Tool

What it does

This Policy Template can be used to synchronize (upload, overwrite, or alert) RS built-in policy templates in your account. It uses a json file stored in the github directory to determine a set of RightScale's current policy templates and then compares them with your current account policies (using the version) to take appropriate action.

Usage

  • The Policy Template Synchronization Policy Template will need to be uploaded to your account and set active.
  • There are currently two actions: Email and Email and Upload.
  • When you choose Email you will get an alert on the the policy templates that can be updated, and no further action will be taken.
  • When you choose Email and Upload, you will get an alert on the policy templates that can be updated and we will upload those policies to your account.

Scenarios

  1. No RightScale's built-in Policy Templates in the account
    1. Email or Email and Upload
  2. RightScale's built-in Policy Templates exist in the account
    1. Versions are the same: No Action
    2. Versions are different: Email or Email and Upload
    3. Versions are the same, Force Upgrade = 1: Email or Email and Upload

Parameters

  1. Email addresses of the recipients you wish to notify - Ex: noreply@example.com

Cost

You can’t perform that action at this time.
