Create a new policy

In this example, we are going to create a new policy for the ERA Agent Connection Interval. We highly recommend doing this prior to testing mass deployment in your environment.

Create a New Static Group. Add a new policy by clicking Admin > Policies. Click Policies at the bottom and select New...

admin_policies_new_wizard

icon_section Basic

Enter a Name for the new policy (for example "Agent Connection Interval"). The Description field is optional.

icon_section Settings

Select ESET Remote Administrator Agent from the Product drop-down menu.

icon_section Connection

Select a category in the tree on the left. In the right pane, edit settings as required. Each setting is a rule for which you can set a flag. To make navigation easier, all rules are counted. The number of rules you have defined in a particular section will be displayed automatically. Also, you'll see a number next to a category name in the tree on the left. This shows a sum of rules in all its sections. This way, you'll quickly see where and how many settings/rules are defined.

You can also use these suggestions to make policy editing easier:

ouse icon_plus to set Apply flag to all item in current a section
odelete rules using Trashcan icon

Click Change interval.

In the Regular interval field, change the value to your preferred interval time (we recommend 60 seconds) and click Save.

Once you've created a new Agent Connection Interval policy, assign it to the Static Group you created in step 1.

After you are finished with mass deployment testing, edit the ERA Agent Connection Interval policy settings you created in step 2.

Click Admin > Groups and select the Policies tab. Click Agent Connection Interval policy, choose Edit and then click Settings > Connection. Click Change Interval and set the connection interval to 20 minutes.
