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.
- In the
menu bar, 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.
