About macros and macrocalls

A
macro
is a collection of access policy actions that provide common access policy functions. For example, AD auth and resources is a preconfigured macro template. It supplies a logon page, an Active Directory authentication action, and a resource assignment action. The properties and rules for the actions are configurable.
After a macro is configured, it can be placed into the access policy by adding a macrocall. A
macrocall
is an action that performs the functions defined in a macro.
A macro contains actions and terminals and can include macrocalls.
Access policy actions
Any available action or series of actions.
Macrocalls
Calls to other macros (nested macros).
Terminals
An endpoint in a macro. Default terminals are
Successful
and
Failure
. Terminals are configurable and can be added and deleted.
Terminals defined in the macro display as the branches that follow the macrocall after it has been added to the access policy.
