Before creating policies, you need to design your policy strategy. For example, if you are going to use role-based access, you need to decide which roles you need and which roles allow access to your protected resources. Roles, which are used by Authorization policies that grant and deny access, need to be created first. If you have already created the roles and assigned them to users in your LDAP user store, you can use the values of your role attributes in the Authorization policies rather than using Access Manager roles.
To create a policy, see the following sections:
A policy cannot be deleted as long as a resource is configured to use the policy. For Access Gateway and J2EE Agent policies, this means that you must remove the policy from all protected resources.
Roles can be used by Authorization, Form Fill, and Identity Injection policies. Before you can delete a Role policy, you must remove any reference to the role from all other policies.
Policies can be sorted by name and by type. On the Policies page, clickin the , and the policies are sorted alphabetically by name. To sort alphabetically by type, click Type in the Policy List.
Policies which are created in the Administration Console can be exported and used in another Administration Console that is managing a different group of Access Gateways and other devices. Each policy type has slightly different import requirements. See the following:
