Extreme Management Center Policy Manager is a management GUI that automates the definition and enforcement of network-wide policy rules. It eliminates the need to configure policies on a device-by-device basis using complex CLI commands. The Policy Manager‘s GUI provides ease of classification rule and policy role creation, because you only define policies once using an easy to understand point and click GUI— and regardless of the number of moves, adds or changes to the policy role, Policy Manager automatically enforces roles on Extreme security-enabled infrastructure devices.
This section presents policy configuration from the perspective of the CLI. Though it is possible to configure policy from the CLI, CLI policy configuration in even a small network can be complex from an operational point of view. It is highly recommended that policy configuration be performed using the Extreme Management Center Policy Manager.
