You are attempting to update an existing cluster policy, however the update does not apply to the cluster associated with the policy. If you attempt to edit a cluster that is managed by a policy, the changes are not applied or saved.


This is a known issue that is being addressed.


You can use a workaround until a permanent fix is available.

  1. Edit the cluster policy.
  2. Re-attribute the policy to Free form.
  3. Add the edited policy back to the cluster.

If you want to edit a cluster that is associated with a policy:

  1. Terminate the cluster.
  2. Associate a different policy to the cluster.
  3. Edit the cluster.
  4. Re-associate the original policy to the cluster.
