Types

Policies allow administrators to dictate how and when users authenticate for a particular policy. There are three types of policies:

Organization Policy

The Organization Policy applies to the entire LoginTC Organization and is the default Policy when Policy Policy and Group Policies are not present.

Policy Policy

The Policy Policy applies to all users authenticating to an Policy. It overrides the Organization Policy.

Group Policy

The Group Policy applies to specific group of users authentication to an Policy. It overrides both Organization Policy and Policy Policy. Group Policies are in priority order. If a user is part of multiple groups, then the first Group Policy found will be the one applied.
