® Sametime products implement user policies that have higher weights over policies with lower weights. You can change the weight of policies.
About this task
User policies in Sametime have weights. A policy's weight determines whether or not its attributes take precedence over the attributes of other policies. For a given user or group assigned two or more policies, Sametime implements the policy with the highest weight. Anonymous policies always have the lowest weight; default policies have the next lowest weight. For authenticated users, Sametime searches for an exact ID match, and then applies the highest weighted policy. If there is no match for the user ID in any policy, the Sametime applies the highest weighted group match. If no group matches are found, the default policy applied. You can change the weight of policies by moving them up and down the policy list of a Sametime product.
