The Policy API in Provisiond lets you control the persistence of discovered IP and SNMP interface entities and node tags during the scan phase.
Edit the foreign source definition (
Edit Definition button) of a requisition to define policies.
The matchBehavior action is a boolean control that determines how the optional parameters will be evaluated.
Setting this parameter’s value to
ALL_PARAMETERS causes Provisiond to evaluate each optional parameter with boolean AND logic and the value
ANY_PARAMETERS causes OR logic to be applied.
String values are assumed to be a substring match, unless the parameter is prefixed with
~ to indicate the policy should evaluate as a regular expression.
There are three types of policy: node, IP interface, and SNMP interface.
Node policies apply to the node as a whole, and are applied during node scans relatively early in the process, potentially before any interfaces are discovered.
For information on supported policies and how to configure them, see policies reference section.
