A naming policy is a collection of rules that controls the names that may be assigned to DNS resource records. Naming policies can be used to enforce a naming convention and to prevent restricted words from being used in resource record names.
A naming policy is defined by assembling one or more naming policy values into the required name structure.
To create a naming policy:
- Select the Administration tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Administration page.
- Under General, click Naming Policy Management.
- Click the Naming Policies tab.
- Under Naming Policy section, click New.
Under General, complete the following:
- Name—enter a descriptive name for the policy.
- Policy Value—select a policy value and click Add. The item is added to the list. Repeat this step to add more items to the naming policy.
- To adjust the position of an item in the list, select the item and click the Move Up and Move Down buttons to move the item up or down in the list.
- Click and drag the item in the list.
- To remove a policy value from the list, select the item and click Remove.
- If you have defined naming restrictions, they appear in the Naming Restriction list. Click the right and left arrows to add and remove naming restrictions from the Selected list.
- Click Add.
