policy defines restrictions for the consumption of a published service that is protected by the 
API Gateway
. Policy assertions are the building blocks for policies in the Policy Manager. 
Unless specified otherwise, all assertions can be used in a web service and XML application policy. A policy is constructed by either:
  • Dragging and dropping an assertion from the [
    Assertions
    ] tab into the policy development window, or by
  • Highlighting the target assertion in the [
    Assertions
    ] tab and clicking the Add Assertion button in the Assertions Tool Bar.
Most assertions require configuration either before or after being added to the policy development window.  
Depending on which 
API Gateway
 product you have installed, not all assertions described here may be available in your installation.
