4.2 Applying Policies

Policies let you control the behavior of devices. There are nine types of policies you can create:

To create a policy, you use the Create New Policy Wizard. In addition to helping you create the policy, the wizard also lets you assign it to devices and users and decide whether to enforce the policy immediately or wait until the device refreshes its information.

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, click the Policies tab.

    Policies page
  2. In the Policies panel, click New > Policy to launch the Create New Policy Wizard.

  3. Follow the prompts to create, assign, and schedule the policy.

    Click the Help button on each wizard page for detailed information about the page.

    When you complete the wizard, the policy is added to the Policies panel. You can click the policy to view the policy’s details and modify assignments.

You can also use the policy-create command in the zman utility to create a policy. For more information, see Policy Commands in the ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Command Line Utilities Reference.
