Adding a region serviced by the resource pool

You can associate regions that define the set of geographical areas a resource pool services.

About this task

You can also specify the days of week and time of day that the resource pool services a given region as well as specify whether the region is the resource pool's primary region. If a region is not marked as a primary region, it is only considered if all other resource pools that may have been configured with the region marked as a primary region have no available capacity.

Note: If you are configuring a resource pool for delivery services, the regions you add must belong to the region schema you associated with delivery services for resource pool usage.
Note: If you are configuring a resource pool for provided services, the regions you add must belong to the region schema you associated with provided services for resource pool usage.
Note: For more information about associating region schemas for resource pool usage, see Defining region usage for resource pools.
