Working with Legacy Policy Settings and Permissions

In Control Manager 6.0 to 6.0 Service Pack 2, Control Manager administrators have the following options when configuring permissions for managed product settings:

  • Centrally Managed (Blue): The assigned targets will comply with the settings defined in the policy.

  • Locally Managed (Orange): Control Manager does not deploy the settings of the selected feature to the targets. Managed product administrators can define the settings through the product console.When administrators deploy a policy with all feature settings switched to locally managed, the policy status of the targets will remain in the pending state.

Starting in version 6.0 Service Pack 3, all features are considered centrally managed (switching permissions is no longer possible), except for features set to be locally managed in versions 6.0 to 6.0 Service Pack 2. For these locally managed features, administrators can keep them as they are. They can also change the permission to "centrally managed" (by sliding the orange-colored button to the left), which is permanent and therefore cannot be reversed later.
