Policy Common Objects

Policy objects are configuration settings that are applied to Extreme Networks APs, switches, and routers. They consists of defined categories of policies, profiles, and interfaces that affect client interaction with Extreme Networks devices.

Policy Objects Description Summary

Auto Provisioning:

You can add, modify and delete auto provisioning profiles. When you enable automatic provisioning, ExtremeCloud IQ uploads a specific IQ Engine image and configuration to all automatically discovered devices after they make an initial CAPWAP connection with ExtremeCloud IQ. You can enable ExtremeCloud IQ to upload a IQ Engine image, configuration, or both an image and a configuration. In ExtremeCloud IQ, you can assign IQ Engine version 6.5r3 to either AP121 or AP141. Or, you can assign IQ Engine version 6.6r2 to all of the other supported devices. When you enable ExtremeCloud IQ to upload both an image and a configuration, it uploads the image first, and then the configuration.

Bonjour Gateway Settings: You can add, modify, and delete Bonjour gateway object settings. Bonjour is a protocol that Apple devices use to advertise available services within a VLAN/subnet. Extreme Networks devices can function as Bonjour Gateways and forward service advertisements across VLAN/subnet boundaries. Services in one VLAN or subnet then become available to users in other VLANs/subnets.

Hives: You can add, modify, and delete hive objects. A hive is a set of Extreme Networks devices that exchange information with each other to form a collaborative whole through coordinated actions based on shared information between hive member devices. Configurable settings include client roaming information (roaming cache) that allows clients to roam between hive members in different subnets while continuing to maintain their original IP addresses and sessions. You can also permit or deny memberships to a specific hive.

Port Types: You can view or delete port type objects. Port types prescribe the types of connections that physical ports on Extreme Networks devices behave. To make use of them, you must apply them to device templates within a network policy. Port types include access port, phone with a data port, trunk port, and mirror port.

Radio Profiles: You can add, modify, and delete Radio Profile objects. The pair of radios in an AP generally operate in two different frequency bands: radio 1 (wifi0) generally operates at 2.4 GHz, and radio 2 (wifi1) generally operates at 5 GHz. The number of radios and frequency bands supported vary by AP model. A radio profile contains settings that you can apply to the radios on an AP.

Schedules: You can add, modify, and delete SSID availability schedules.

SSIDs: You can view and delete SSID objects. An SSID object includes an SSID plus various settings such as the user profiles (and their accompanying QoS and firewall policies), SSID availability schedules, MAC address and traffic filters.

User Profiles: You can add, modify, and delete user profiles on this page. A user profile contains a grouping of settings that determine the QoS (Quality of Service), firewall policy permissions, tunnel policy, VLAN, and scheduled activation times for the users to whom you apply the profile.
