13.0 Configuring Policies

Policies contain configuration settings for the Advanced Authentication methods, events, and so on. For example, to use the Email OTP method, you must configure the server and port settings in the Mail sender policy and to use the Multitenancy mode, you must enable the Multitenancy options policy.

Advanced Authentication provides the following policies:

To configure a policy, perform the following steps:

  1. Click Policies in the Administration portal.

  2. Click the Edit icon against the policy you want to configure.

    You can also double-click on the policy to edit the configuration.

  3. Make the required changes for a specific policy.

    A top administrator can enforce the configurations of a policy on secondary tenants. After configuring a policy, you can lock the settings for that specific tenant. The tenant cannot edit the locked settings in the tenant administrator console.

    To enforce the configurations for a specific tenant, perform the following steps:

    1. In Tenancy settings, click +.

    2. Move the tenant to whom you want to enforce the configurations from the Available to the Used list in the Force the configuration for the tenants section.

    3. After you add a tenant, the Hide forced settings option is displayed. You can turn this option to ON if you want to hide the configurations that you have enforced on the tenant.

      NOTE:The Tenancy settings are not supported for the following policies: CEF log forwarding, Event categories, HTTPS Options, Logo, and Multitenancy options.

      A tenant administrator cannot access the CEF log forwarding and Multitenancy options policies.

  4. Click Save.

IMPORTANT:The configured policies are applied for all the Advanced Authentication servers.
