Managing the Suppression List

Manually add an email address to the suppression list to prevent it from being part of your sending list.

Users are required to have correct permissions to manage the suppression list. Currently, identity policies for suppression must be at the tenant level (not at the compartment level). The following is an example of the permission policy statement.

Allow group <sender admins group> to manage suppressions in tenancy

Suppressions are stored at the tenancy level. Therefore any request requiring a compartmentId must provide the tenancyId as the compartmentId. For example:

Allow group <ordinary users group> to inspect suppressions in tenancy
Allow group <power users group> to read suppressions in tenancy
Allow group <sender admins group> to manage suppressions in tenancy

For other policies required for Email sending, see Managing Approved Senders and Generate SMTP Credentials for a User. Also, for advanced policies, see Advanced Policy Features.
