Creating a policy

In Administration Console, you can create policies directly in the folder of the administration group for which a policy is to be created, or in the workspace of the Policies folder.

To create a policy in the folder of an administration group:

  1. In the console tree, select an administration group for which you want to create a policy.
  2. In the workspace of the group, select the Policies tab.
  3. Run the New Policy Wizard by clicking the New policy button.

The New Policy Wizard starts. Follow the instructions of the Wizard.

To create a policy in the workspace of the Policies folder:

  1. In the console tree, select the Policies folder.
  2. Run the New Policy Wizard by clicking the New policy button.

The New Policy Wizard starts. Follow the instructions of the Wizard.

You can create several policies for one application from the group, but only one policy can be active at a time. When you create a new active policy, the previous active policy becomes inactive.

When creating a policy, you can specify a minimum set of parameters required for the application to function properly. All other values are set to the default values applied during the local installation of the application. You can change the policy after it is created.

Do not use private data in policy settings. For example, avoid specifying the domain administrator password.

Settings of Kaspersky Lab applications that are changed after policies are applied are described in detail in their respective Guides.

After the policy is created, the settings locked from editing (marked with the lock) take effect on client devices regardless of which settings were previously specified for the application.
