Global Clusters are not by default configured for automatic failover.

Extract from Cluster Admin Guide:

If there is only one path between the two clusters, you must prevent split-brain by confirming manually via telephone or
some messaging system with administrators at the remote site if a failure has occurred. By default, VCS global clusters fail over an application across cluster boundaries with administrator confirmation.

Best to configure alerts/notification rather than setting ClusterFailOverPolicy to Auto. (The default is Manual.)
