Policies can be created at the Account and Site level.

  • Account policies are visible at both the Account and Site level, and can be enabled or disabled for a specific site.
  • Policies created at the Site level will only be visible on that site's Policies page. Site policies do not replace account polices but work in conjunction with them.
  • At the Device level, those account and site policies are displayed that target that specific device.

For an introduction to policies, refer to About policies.
