The association of a global rule to a policy appears to be lost after loading a config by directly loading, saving, upgrading, and config syncing. As a result of this issue, you may encounter the following symptom: After re-enabling a global policy and waiting for an unspecified period of time, you observe that the policy is disabled again.
Policies are removed from enforcement in the global context.
This occurs when you associate a global rule with a policy, and then initiate an operation that causes config load.
To work around this issue, you can add back the rules manually, or, if you have not configured a route domain, you can apply route domain rules to Route Domain 0, which is effectively the same as the global rule context when no other route domains are configured. Impact of workaround: If you have other route domains configured, Route Domain 0 is no longer usable as a global context.
The association of a global rule to a policy is now retained after loading a config by directly loading, saving, upgrading, and config syncing.
