Comparing policies

You can compare two policies for a single managed application. After the comparison, you have a report that displays which policy settings match and which settings differ. For example, you may have to compare policies if different administrators in their respective offices have created multiple policies for a single managed application, or if a single top-level policy has been inherited by all local offices and modified for each office. You can compare policies in one of the following ways: by selecting one policy and comparing it to another, or by comparing any two policies from the list of policies.

To compare one policy to another:

  1. In the console tree, select the Policies folder.
  2. In the workspace of the Policies folder, select the policy that you require to compare to another.
  3. In the context menu of the policy, select Compare policy to another policy.
  4. In the Select policy window, select the policy to which your policy must be compared.
  5. Click OK.

A report in HTML format is displayed for the comparison of the two policies for the same application.

To compare any two policies from the list of policies:

  1. In the Policies folder, in the list of policies, use the Shift or Ctrl key to select two policies for a single managed application.
  2. In the context menu, select Compare.

A report in HTML format is displayed for the comparison of the two policies for the same application.
