Editing System Content Policies

Policy Management system content policies should not be edited.  To customize a system policy,  copy the policy to the Private cabinet.  Policies can be copied individually OR an entire folder structure can be copied.  Once the policies have been copied to the system cabinet, edit the policies as necessary and assign the new policy to the appropriate machines and/or organizations. 

Copying System Content Policies

  • Navigate to Policy Management > Policies
  • Expand the System cabinet
  • Identify the individual policy OR folder structure to be copied
  • Press and hold the Crtl button on the keyboard
  • Select the policy/folder to be copied
  • While holding Crtl, drag the policy/folder to the Policies cabinet
  • Release the policy/folder into the appropriate folder within the Policies cabinet
     

 

Note:  You must press/hold the Crtl button before beginning the drag/drop of the policy or folder

 

Once the policy is copied, it may be edited and applied to any machine, machine group, organization, and/or to the global level.
