Messages and Notifications in Privilege Management Policy

You can define any number of end user Messages and notifications. Messages and notifications are displayed when a user’s action triggers a rule. Rules can be triggered by an application launch or block.

Messages provide an effective way of alerting the user before an action is performed. For example, before an application is authorized, or advising that an application launch has been blocked.

Messages give the user information about the application, the action taken, and can be used to request information from the user. Messages also allow authorization and authentication controls to be enforced before access to an application is granted.

Messages are customizable with visual styles, corporate branding and display text, so you are offered a familiar and contextual experience. Messages are assigned to Application Rules.

Once defined, a Message may be assigned to an Application Rule within a Workstyle by editing the rule. Depending on the type of Workstyle you’ve created, Privilege Management for Mac may auto-generate certain Messages for you to use.
