Converting Governance Policies Created Prior to Version 5.4

Prior to version 5.4, a ControlPoint Governance Policy could have multiple "instances," each with its own schedule.  If you have Governance Policies that were created prior to version 5.4, they will display in the Governance Policy Manager with the option to [Convert Pre-5.4 Policies].  Note that you only run this conversion once, and the operation will convert all pre-5.4. policies.

NOTE:  You must convert pre-5.4 Governance Policies before you can edit or delete them.

Once policies are converted:

·all existing Instances will be combined into a single Scope

·the schedule for each instance will be removed

·the Type column will be removed from the grid

·the [Convert Pre-5.4 Policies] button will no longer be visible,

After completing the conversion, you will need to create a new schedule for the Governance Policy rule(s).
