Force Policy Updates
End users working on either Windows or macOS computers can update policy on their computers without administrator assistance.
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.
- In the
system tray, click the Privilege Management icon.
- 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.
Force Update Policy for macOS End Users
A user can check whether a new policy is available. If it is, then the new policy is downloaded and applied. The immediate availability of a new policy is useful when you have an issue that requires a policy update, without the necessity of waiting for a poll to pull in a new one.
To refresh all policies, select the Privilege Management for Mac menu bar icon, and select Refresh all Policies.
If a newer policy is found, it is downloaded and applied immediately.
A message confirming the successful update appears. The new policy revision date also appears in the dropdown menu as Last updated.
