About session variables

An access policy stores the values that actions return in session variables. A
session variable
contains a number or string that represents a specific piece of information. This information is organized in a hierarchical arrangement and is stored as the user's session data.
The Current Sessions report in the Access Policy Manager Reports area displays all session variables for a session. Session variables can be useful in access policies to achieve various results, including:
  • Customizing access rules or defining your own access policy rules.
  • Providing different outcomes for policies based on the values in the session variables.
  • Determining which resources to assign to users (with the Resource Assign action).
