1.0 Overview

Policies manage the data that is synchronized between the Identity Vault and the remote data store. The policies are stored in policy sets. Identity Manager installs iManager plug-ins that allow you to create and manage policies.

In order to access the objects that are used in policies, see iManager Navigation.

As part of understanding how policies work, it is important to understand their components.

For more information on policies and policy types, see Understanding Types of Policies in Understanding Policies for Identity Manager 4.0.1.

The following sections explain how to create and use policies.

This guide also contains a detailed reference section for all of the elements in DirXML Script. For more information on DirXML Script, see DirXML Script DTD in Identity Manager 4.0.1 DTD Reference.
