Administrative Journal and Event Handler Overview
The Policy Server Administrative Journal can be configured to specify how often administrative changes are applied to the Policy Server and how long the Policy Server maintains a list of applied changes.
Event Handlers are shared libraries that can be added to the Policy Server to handle certain events.
