Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Administration Guide


The referral defines the organization to which the policy evaluation is being referred. By default, there are two types of referrals: peer realm and sub realm. They delegate to an realm on the same level and an realm on a sub level, respectively. See Creating Policies for Peer Realms and Sub Realms for more information.

Note –

The realm that is referred to can define or evaluate policies only for those resources (or sub-resources) that have been referred to it. This restriction, however, does not apply to the top-level realm.
