You can create user policies, and assign users and groups to these policies.
About this task
You can set policy for users to have access to specific IBM
® Sametime features, depending upon their level of need. For example, the maximum size for a file being transferred is set by default at 1 megabyte to help manage traffic over the server(s); however, if you have a group that routinely transfers large files for business reasons, you can create a new policy specifically for those users and set the maximum size of files that they can send to a much higher number.
When you create a new policy, it uses the default policy settings as the base settings in the new policy. You can update these settings.
- Log in to the Integrated Solutions Console.
- Click Sametime System Console.
- Click Manage Policies.
- Click the Sametime product for which you want to create a policy.
Enter a name to use to identify the policy in the Policy Name field.
- Instant Messaging
- Media Manager
Specify the features that you want to enable or disable for the users or groups that you will assign to this policy.
Do not use the following special characters in the policy's name or in any one of the values of policy attributes:
- Ampersand (&)
- Apostrophe (')
- Quotation mark (")
- Greater than character (>)
- Less than character (<)
Some instant messaging features are flagged with IC characters after the field label. This flag indicates that a feature is only available for installed clients. The feature is not available to browser clients.
You can follow these same basic steps to delete or edit a policy. Delete a policy by selecting the policy and then click the Delete
button. Edit a policy by clicking the policy name. You cannot delete the anonymous or default policies, but you can edit them. If you edit a policy, you cannot change the policy ID. To do this, you must make a copy of the policy by selecting it and clicking Duplicate
, then you can enter a new ID in the copy. Before you delete the original, be sure to reassign the users and groups to the copy and give it the proper policy weight.
What to do next
You can now assign users and groups to this policy.
