Policy management

Policies are properties of applications. Creating the first policy for an application is part of the setup process for that application.

You can then choose to edit or delete that first policy after completing the application setup, or you can decide to add new policies to the application, all from the Applications section of the Cloudflare Zero Trust Dashboard.

You can create up to 1,000 policies per application.
