as your initiative is a collection of policies that are intended to achieving a single goal.
Combining the policies in initiatives. Simplify the management in assignment of policy definitions.
One good example for initiative is the audit. CS Microsoft Azure Foundations benchmark 110
This is a standard initiative in agile and contains 84 different policies in it.
Those policies cover all the security recommendations from C. I. S.
You can assign dish in each initiative to your subscription to ensure your azure resource is are compliant with the C S recommendations.
Initiatives like policy definitions use powder matters to simplify management and enable reuse
the initiative parameters are the parameters being used by the policy definitions within the initiative.
In this example, we have three police definitions that are included in the initiative.
Each definition has its own parliament, er's
In the case of policy definition one and policy definition. Three. We have the same part of matter allowed vocation from the same time.
Depending on how you want the this initiative, Toby evaluated, you may decide to have only two parameters one string part a matter for a lot of occasion
that will be used by both the policy definition one and policy definition three and one array para matter for a lot of occasions that will be used by the policy definition to
you may also decide to have a single are a part a matter for a lot of occasions.
And when the assignment is done, the selected vocation becomes also the value for the definition one and definition. Three.
However, if policy number one in policy number three evaluate resource is that must be deporting different locations, you may need to provide two separate locations. Parameters toe the initiative, one used by the policy definition one and one by the policy definition. Three.
It is good to change the names for the initiative para matters, to make it clear that the purpose of the parameters is clear.
An example of such scenario is when you need to ensure that VPN gateways are deployed closer to your quit quarters office in US West and Developers resource is our deport closer to the offshore office in India.
When you design your policies and initiatives, it is worth thinking through all the possible scenarios, those will be used and make the definitions as flexible as possible.
