Policy Deployment Settings in Privilege Management Console

You can choose to deploy policy to your computers automatically or manually.

It is highly recommended that you automatically deploy policy to computers.

Manage Policy Deployment Settings

Go to Configuration > Policy & Computer Settings to choose to deploy the policy automatically or manually to your computers.

If you select automatic deployment, you do not need to do anything else to deploy a policy that is assigned to a group containing computers.

Policy Deployment Options: Automatically or Manually Deploy

If you select manual deployment, there are two additional options when you interact with one or more computers in the Computers grid. These settings allow you to deploy to the selected computers or all computers.

 

Force Update Policy for End Users

End users are able to force a policy update to their computer from the system tray. This feature allows the end-user to request a new policy from their desktop, thus significantly reducing the time it takes to update a policy.

  1. In the system tray, click the Privilege Management icon.
  2. Click Check for Policy Update.

A notification appears with Update Finished to notify the user that a policy update has been applied to the client.

A notification appears with No Updates Found if the current policy is already up to date.

A notification appears with Unable to Check for Updates if the computer is unable to reach the management platform.

The Force Update Policy feature is not currently available for macOS.
