Ordered list of CommunicationEntries. This object is created by default along with the Domain. This type is deprecated. Use the type SecurityPolicy instead.


Required Property Name Type Description
optional _create_time integer

Timestamp of resource creation

optional _create_user string

ID of the user who created this resource

optional _last_modified_time integer

Timestamp of last modification

optional _last_modified_user string

ID of the user who last modified this resource

optional _links array of ResourceLink

The server will populate this field when returing the resource. Ignored on PUT and POST.

optional _protection string

Protection status is one of the following: PROTECTED - the client who retrieved the entity is not allowed to modify it. NOT_PROTECTED - the client who retrieved the entity is allowed to modify it REQUIRE_OVERRIDE - the client who retrieved the entity is a super user and can modify it, but only when providing the request header X-Allow-Overwrite=true. UNKNOWN - the _protection field could not be determined for this entity.

optional _revision integer

The _revision property describes the current revision of the resource. To prevent clients from overwriting each other’s changes, PUT operations must include the current _revision of the resource, which clients should obtain by issuing a GET operation. If the _revision provided in a PUT request is missing or stale, the operation will be rejected.

optional _schema string

Schema for this resource

optional _self SelfResourceLink

Link to this resource

optional _system_owned boolean

Indicates system owned resource

optional category string
  • Distributed Firewall - Policy framework for Distributed Firewall provides four pre-defined categories for classifying a communication map. They are “Emergency”, “Infrastructure”, “Environment” and “Application”. Amongst the layer 3 communication maps,there is a pre-determined order in which the policy framework manages the priority of these communication maps. Emergency category has the highest priority followed by Infrastructure, Environment and then Application rules. Administrator can choose to categorize a communication map into the above categories or can choose to leave it empty. If empty it will have the least precedence w.r.t the above four layer 3 categories.
optional children array of ChildPolicyConfigResource

subtree for this type within policy tree containing nested elements.

optional communication_entries array of CommunicationEntry

CommunicationEntries that are a part of this CommunicationMap

optional description string

Description of this resource

optional display_name string

Defaults to ID if not set

optional id string

Unique identifier of this resource

optional marked_for_delete boolean

Intent objects are not directly deleted from the system when a delete is invoked on them. They are marked for deletion and only when all the realized entities for that intent object gets deleted, the intent object is deleted. Objects that are marked for deletion are not returned in GET call. One can use the search API to get these objects.

optional parent_path string

Path of its parent

optional path string

Absolute path of this object

optional precedence integer

This field is used to resolve conflicts between communication maps across domains. In order to change the precedence of a communication map one can fire a POST request on the communication map entity with a query parameter action=revise The precedence field will reflect the value of the computed precedence upon execution of the above mentioned POST request. For scenarios where the administrator is using a template to update several communication maps, the only way to set the precedence is to explicitly specify the precedence number for each communication map. If no precedence is specified in the payload, a value of 0 is assigned by default. If there are multiple communication maps with the same precedence then their order is not deterministic. If a specific order of communication map is desired, then one has to specify a unique precedence or use the POST request on the communication map entity with a query parameter action=revise to let the framework assign a precedence

optional relative_path string

Path relative from its parent

optional resource_type string

The type of this resource.

optional tags array of Tag

Opaque identifiers meaningful to the API user
