Copy a policy

If you want to create a new policy that is similar to an existing policy, you can copy that policy and make the changes you want. Copying a policy can simplify the process of creating a new policy.

Before you begin:

You must have the Policy Administrator role to copy policies.

To complete this task:

  1. Go to Policies > Policies at the top of the Veracode Platform.

  2. Find the policy you want to copy from the Policies table.

  3. Select the Actions menu and select Copy Policy.

  4. Edit the policy name and description and select Next.

  5. Add, delete, or edit any of the rules, evaluation timeframe, grace periods, and custom severities and select Next.

  6. Make any necessary changes to the scan requirements and select Finish.


After you create the policy, the Veracode Platform displays a message saying the policy was created successfully.
