Group Policies

The Group Policies section of the Folders module allows administrators to define policies specific to a group, set a group folder, and define folder template actions.  The Group Policies layout and functionality is similar to User Policies. To access the Group Policies, navigate to the Folders module and click on Group Policies.

The General menu contains fields to characterize a Group policy.

Description

Enabled

This checkbox will activate the policy when checked. If this box is left empty, the policy will remain inactive.

This checkbox is disabled by default.

Description

This optional input field allows for a brief description of the policy.

Group Base DN Filter

This input field defines the group's DN base filter that the policy will apply to using the appropriate distinguished name (DN) filter. This will refer to the container that holds the Groups to which the policy applies.

The magnifying glass glass.png to the right of the field opens the LDAP directory tree to allow the administrator the ability to locate and select the DN or Group.

Include Sub-Containers

This checkbox will apply the policy to all containers under the base container when checked. If this box is deselected, the policy will only apply to the base container.

This checkbox is enabled by default.

Group LDAP Filter

This input field defines the group(s) that the policy will apply to using the appropriate Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) filter.

The magnifying glass glass.png to the right of the field opens the LDAP criteria builder window to allow the administrator the ability to build the LDAP Filter.

Excluded Groups

This field allows groups to be excluded from the policy.



Group Folder

The Group Folder menu contains fields that define the Template and UNC Path of the policy it relates to.
