Combine policies into groups

Prerequisite: The individual policies of different types must have been created beforehand.

  1. In the navigation area, click Policies.
  2. In the navigation window, right-click Policy Groups and select New.
  3. Click New Policy Group. A dialog for naming the policy group is displayed.
  4. Enter a name and optionally a description for the policy group. Click OK.
  5. The new policy group is displayed in the navigation window under Policy Groups.
  6. Select the policy group. The action area shows all elements required for grouping the policies.
  7. To add the policies to the group, drag them from the list of available policies to the policy area.
  8. You can define a priority for each policy by arranging the policies in order using the context menu.

    If you put policies of the same type in a group, the settings are merged automatically. In this case, you can define priorities for using the settings. The settings of a policy with a higher priority overwrite the settings of a policy with a lower priority. If an option is set to not configured, the setting is not overwritten in a policy of a lower priority.

    Exception concerning device protection:

    Policies for device protection are only merged, if they were defined for the same target (for example boot volume). If they are for different targets, the settings are added.

  9. Save the policy with File > Save.

The policy group now contains the settings of all the individual policies.
