The Policy combination section allows you to manage the various policies applicable to a user based on their group memberships.

To update the Policy combination section with the new group:

  1. On the user detail page, on the User groups tab, in the Policy combination section, click Add item.

  2. In the Policy combination section, specify whether to apply all or any of the policies.

Note

This configuration defines whether to apply the various user group policies separately (apply any) or combined (apply all).

Tip

To create several policy sets, use the Add set button. For each set, you can add one or several policies along with the available ones and define whether to apply any or all.
