      Note

      Adding a cloud folder automatically includes all the cloud folder subfolders. Any folder added to the cloud folder at a later date is also included automatically in the zone.

    • No Folders – The zone will not include any folders.
  4. In the DEVICES tab, specify edge filers that can see the folders in the zone. When edge filers are specified, only those edge filers have access to the folder in the zone. When no edge filers are selected, every edge filer has access to the folders in the zone.
    Start typing the name of an edge filer. The list of edge filers that match what you type is displayed, enabling you to select the edge filers to add to the zone.
