Change or delete policies

The features described in this article are available only to partners who use YouTube's Content ID matching system.

A key advantage of creating and saving custom policies is that any changes you make to a policy automatically propagate to all claims that use the policy.

You can only delete custom policies that are not being used. You can't delete the predefined policies Monetize in all countries, Track in all countries, or Block in all countries, nor any policy that is applied to a claim or designated as a default policy.

To edit or delete a policy:

  1. From the Content ID section of the Dashboard, choose Policies.

    • The page lists the three predefined policies and any custom policies you’ve created.

  2. Click the check box next to the policy you want to change.

  3. To delete the policy, click the Delete button (and skip the rest of the steps).

    • The Delete action is not available if you've selected one of the predefined policies or a policy that is currently in use.

  4. To change the policy, click the Edit button to display the policy details.

  5. Update the policy details as necessary, by following the same steps you did when you created the policy.

  6. Click Save to save your changes.
