Adding VA policy groups
This topic describes the task of creating groups for predefined or user-defined policies by using filtering criteria.
1. Go to Policy > VA Policy Groups of the left-side menu.
2. Select the Add button.
3. On the subsequent Policies page, choose either the Pre-Defined Policies tab or the User-Defined Policies tab and then fill in the text boxes
a. Use the Policy Type dropdown in order to create a group consisting of just pre-defined policies, user-defined policies, or both (All).
b. Use the Group Name text box to enter a name that will show up in the saved policy-group list. Use the optional Description text box to describe your filtering/grouping criteria.
c. To create a filtering condition, enter an Column on which you would like to filter, an Operator that associates the Column with a Value, and a Value that the Column must match.
d. You can add or subtract, respectively, filtering criteria rows by selecting the + (plus) or - (minus) buttons.
 
You cannot use the same Column in multiple rows. For example, you cannot establish a criteria that includes all the policies with a Severity of Minor and all the policies with a Severity of Major.
In order to cancel creating a new policy-group filter and go back to the main Policies page, select the icon.
