About access policy item configuration

An access policy item is a small action, or rule, that serves a specific purpose in an access policy. Access policy items are all added to the access policy in the same way; but in most cases, each access policy item must be configured individually. In Access Policy Manager, an access policy item is one of five types.

Assignment item
An assignment action allows configuration on the configuration page, and contains a list of available resources of a certain type, and allows you to select one or multiple resources to assign. Some resource assignment actions, such as Webtop, Links and Sections Assign, allow you to assign multiple items of different types. Advanced Resource Assign is a special case that allows you to select and assign multiple resources of different types at once.
  • Assignment: Pool Assign
  • Assignment: Webtop, Links and Sections Assign
Mapping assignment item
A mapping assignment action allows you to assign one variable or resource to the value of another variable or resource. This kind of assign action includes the assignment of resources or variables on a separate page, linked from the main screen.
  • Assignment: AD Group Resource Assign
  • Assignment: Variable Assign
