Policy sets

Policy sets are used to group a set of policies that have a common business purpose. These policy sets are then made available to a subset of users in the system.

Each policy set can have one or more associated policy set coordinators. The policy set coordinator is an administrator or a user who has additional permissions. The policy set coordinator is typically a specialist in the organization who can best author the policies in a particular policy set.

Policy set coordinators can perform these tasks:

  • Create new policies

  • Edit and delete any policy in the policy set

  • Edit policy set settings

  • Add and remove policy set coordinators

  • View policy and document events for any policy or document within the policy set

  • Revoke access to documents

  • Switch policies for the document.

Policy sets are created and deleted in the Rights Management administration web pages by administrators and policy set coordinators who have permission to do so.

Policy sets are generally made available to a limited number of users by specifying which users or groups within a domain can use the policies from the policy set to protect documents.

When Rights Management is installed, a default policy set is created called Global Policy Set. The administrator who installed the software manages this policy set.
