Under Enforcement > Enforcement Profiles, you can copy them which will clone them.

You can copy them just like Tcappalli said, and that is the only way to duplicate them.  In practice, however it is best to not have long lists of policies, because it makes troubleshooting difficult.  It is also hard to copy all of those policies back and forth if you need to keep them synchronized.  If you feel you must have alot of rules, you should keep them in as few policies as possible, so that it is easier to copy them between roles...

Tcappalli thinks that you are talking about ClearPass.

 

The only way to Copy Policies to another role is to add them to the new role in the controller.  Since you have alot of policies, it will take a long time to assign the policies to that new role.  If you have more rules in each policy, you will have fewer policies to assign to the new role.

 

Again, many users have started out by having a long list of policies that they assign to a user, but when it comes time to troubleshoot it becomes very, very difficult.  Whoever created the rules would have to be there every day, just in case a problem occurs, so that they would undo the rule they created.

Hi Colin,

I see, Thank you so much

The new policies was apply to my WLAN netowrk  " Deny any trafific to LAN, and only allow some LAN services such as AD, skype bussiness, tools." So we must defind new rules for user roles.

 

One more time, 

Thank you so much
