How to add a system in system tree to more than one DLP policy?

I have created a test policy and wanted to add my system to that policy. My system is already added to another policy. When I tried to add my system to test policy; the system gets removed from its previous assigned policy.

Re: How to add a system in system tree to more than one DLP policy?

Hi Rijo,


  Policy are 1 at a time typically.  You can, however, add your test rule set s to the current policy. I guess it would depend on what you are trying to do? 

My questions in my head: 

1. Why would you need more than 1 policy? 

2. Do you currently have 1 of the policies coming from proiduction and you are trying to test something (not affecting the original prod policy set?) 


Let me know and I will be able to help more directly

You cannot assign more than 1 policy to a system, but you can create a new DLP policy with more than 1 rule sets assigned to them.
