Policy Rules

How to configure and apply Policy Rules to Sources

Policy Rule Basics

Policy Rules areused to restrict who (person, server, etc.) that can create records in the KS_TSK_Seed form through the API.

Once your policy rules are created, thay are then applied to a specific source (see previous chapter). This way, you can create standard rules, and then apply them to multiple sources without having to recreate each time.

Create Policy Rules

Policy rules are created on the Task Administration cosole, Sources console, Policy Rules tab.
