About Client OS

The Client OS action detects the operating system of the remote client. Access Policy Manager detects this using information from the HTTP header. The action provides separate branches for separate operating systems. This action can be very useful at the beginning of an access policy. Each branch can include actions that are specific to a client operating system.
This figure shows the Client OS action and default branches, configured to allow access to clients on the Windows RT operating system and to deny access to all others.

In practice, actions would be specified on the access policy branches and might include logon actions, authentication actions, and other actions.
