11.1 Assigning Policies to Users

You can assign policies and policy groups to users. This section assumes that you have already created any policy groups you want to assign. If not, see Section 20.0, Managing Policy Groups.

The policy assignment can be directly to a user or indirectly to a user through a group or folder in which the user is a member.

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

  2. In the Policies list, select the check box next to policies and policy groups you want to assign.

  3. Click Action > Assign to User.

  4. Browse for and select the user, user groups, and user folders to which you want to assign the group:

    1. Click The Navigate icon next to a folder to navigate through the folders until you find the user, group, or folder you want to select.

      If you are looking for a specific item, such as a User or a User Group, you can use the Items of type list to limit the types of items that are displayed. If you know the name of the item you are looking for, you can use the Item name box to search for the item.

    2. Click the underlined link in the Name column to select the user, group, or folder and display its name in the Selected list box.

    3. Click OK to add the selected devices, folders, and groups to the Users list.

  5. Click Next to display the Finish page.

  6. Review the information and, if necessary, use the Back button to make corrections to the information.

  7. If you want the selected policies to be immediately enforced, select the Enforce policies immediately on all assigned devices.

    This option causes the policy to be immediately distributed to the assigned users’ devices and enforced. If you don’t select this option, the policy is distributed and enforced the next time the users’ device refreshes its policy information from the ZENworks system, either through a manual refresh or a scheduled refresh.

  8. Click Finish.

The policies or policies groups are assigned to the selected users, user groups, and user folders. You can view the assignments on the Relationships page of the policies or policy groups.
