Policies

Policies can contain sets of attributes or endpoints.

Attributes allow a policy to permit access to specific attributes such as siteName.

Info

When configuring granular policies and a user does not have any of the system policies configured, the user must have an attribute policy to be able to view diagrams. The diagram views are protected by a whitelist and will only allow users to view graphs if they have attribute scopes configured.

Endpoints allow a policy to only allow access to specific API endpoints within IP Fabric (e.g. discovery policy allows access to discovery api endpoints).

Policies page enables you to create or modify policies.
