Enable A Default Policy

Policies are a vital part of the Bitium setup process, as they serve to significantly reduce the administrative workload associated with applying multiple permission levels to a specific subset of company apps. Admins will help themselves even further, by creating a Default Policy.

A default policy serves to help automate the permissions process for certain applications. Setting a default policy means that any apps created or installed in the organization after the default policy is set, will be automatically applied to an Access Control List with the appropriate permissions (e.g, Joe Admin adds “Twitter” to the organization. The “Twitter” app will automatically be applied to the “Admins” Access Control List. The permission associated with the “Admins” ACL is “assign and view.” As a result, all admins will have the ability to assign the application and view the password for the “Twitter” app, added by Joe Admin.).

With a default policy set, admins can avoid having to add an app to a policy manually.

To enable a default policy:

  1. Manage “your organization.”

  2. Click “Security.”

  3. Click “Access Control Lists.”

  4. Turn the “Enable Default Policies for apps” toggle to ON.

  5. Select the Access Control List.

  6. Click the eyeball (to give password visibility rights for any apps added to the default policy).
