The policies menu shows you a list of all currently configured policies.

Policies are configuration profiles to provide centralized management and configuration of certain application aspects. Based on the target objects assignments centralized configurations will be enforced overwriting single object settings.

Multiple polices may be used as well layering groups and subgroups settings.

It is also possible to search through the policies by using the search function on the upper right side.

Scanshare provides always a Default Policy with all default settings and applying to everything. This policy may be modified but not removed.

For a better management it is suggested to create new policies to customize the desired settings for the target objects while leaving the default policy with default settings.

The view of the table show you this information:

The order of the policies, a higher order gives priority on the policy. Default policy is the order 0 and it comes by default always as last policy if not matching any other one, applying thus the default settings.

Drag and drop the policies by using the grip handle on the left side of the row to swap their order.

The type of policy identified by icon.

The name of the policy.

A short distinguish description of the policy.

The id associated with your policy. It is unique and it is the id of your policy inside the DB.

If the policy is enabled or not, a disabled policy will not be used. The status of a new policy is automatically set to true when a new policy is created. In the policies menu you can easily set this to false by clicking on the indicator. The policy will then be grayed out, the indicator will be gray and set to off.

The status of the Default Policy is always set to Locked because it cannot be disabled.
