To create policies, navigate to the policy section. This is located under the Administration section of the UI. If this is a fresh installation and we don't choose the policy creation option, we will only see the default policy and other built-in policies.
Two of the built-in policies worth mentioning are:
Base settings: These cannot be edited as they contain all the policy configuration settings available in vROps 6.0. These base settings are designed to be the vendor's baseline of policy recommendations that can then be copied and modified for your own policies.
The vSphere 5.5 hardening guide: This is a policy that is configured to check whether the environment is in compliance with the vSphere 5.5 hardening guide. Note that if vCenter Configuration Manager is being used, this policy will be overwritten and will no longer be shown in the compliance tab.
If we have migrated from an existing vCOps 5.8.x installation that had profiles already configured, they should be migrated...
