Schedules for Policy Checking

Schedules for Policy Checking

Regular testing of company policies is managed through schedules. In the default installation of One Identity Manager, the default schedule "Policy check" is assigned to every new company policy. This schedule generates a process task for DBQueue Processor for every company policy at regular intervals. You can configure your own schedule to check policies on a cycle which suits your requirements. Ensure that the schedules are assigned to the policies.

To edit schedules

  1. Select the category Company Policies | Basic configuration data | Schedules.

    The result list shows exactly those schedules configured for the table QERPolicy.

  2. Select a schedule in the result list and run the task Change master data.
