Policy Templates

The Policy Manager allows you to rename and delete an exported policy that appears in the Policy Templates category of the [Assertions] tab. Although you cannot directly edit the XML content of an exported policy, you can modify an exported template by importing it, updating the assertions, then exporting it back to the same template name.

Policy templates have limited support in the browser client version of the Policy Manager. There is no Policy Templates category in the [
Assertion
] tab, but you can still import and export template files.
