Creating policies

Creating a policy is a two-step process. If you create an organizational policy, it automatically applies when you register users. If you create an explicit policy, you assign it manually during user registration, in the Person document or by using the Policy Assignment tool.

First, create one or more policy settings documents to define default settings that you want to assign to users.

Next, create a Policy document, which identifies specific policy settings.
