Policies in Control Manager

The policy list displays the information and status of policies created by all users. When a new endpoint registers to Control Manager, it goes through the filtered policies in the list in descending order. Control Manager assigns the new endpoint to a filtered policy when the following conditions are both satisfied:

  • The new endpoint matches the target criteria of the policy

  • The policy creator has the permission to manage the new endpoint

The following table describes the items in the policy list.

  • Specified: Uses the browse or search function to select specific targets for the policy. Specified policies remain static on the top of the policy list and take priority over filtered policies.
