Sun Java System Instant Messaging 7.2 Administration Guide

Assigning Policies to a Role, Group, Organization, or User

You can assign policies to a role, group, organization, or user. This includes the default policies or policies that were created after Instant Messaging was installed.

ProcedureTo Assign a Policy

  1. Log in to the Access Manager admin console at http://hostname:port/amconsole.

    For example:

  2. Select the Identity Management tab.

  3. Select Policies in the View drop down list in the navigation pane (the lower-left frame).

  4. Click the arrow next to the name of the policy you want to assign.

    The Edit page for that policy appears in the data pane (the lower-right frame).
