6.2 Understanding Policy Sets

Policy sets combine multiple policies from one or more Change Guardian modules, allowing you to organize and manage monitoring needs for a specific use case. You can include a policy in multiple policy sets, which reduces the total number of policies in the system.

If you add a policy to a policy set that contains multiple asset types, the policy applies only to the applicable assets. For example, if you apply a UNIX policy to a policy set that contains Windows and UNIX assets, the policy applies to the UNIX assets only.

Use the Policy Set Manager to add, edit, or clone policy sets.

To access the Policy Set Manager:

  1. In the left pane, select NetIQ Change Guardian.

  2. Select Policy Set Manager.

After you create a policy set, you can assign the set as you would assign a policy. For more information, see Assigning Policies and Policy Sets.
