Setting the Priorities of Policies
Policies are prioritized and evaluated in the order in which the policy is bound.
The following two methods determine policy priority:
- The level to which the policy is bound: globally, virtual server, group, or user. Policy levels are ranked from highest to lowest as follows:
- User (highest priority)
- Virtual server
- Global (lowest priority)
- Numerical priority takes precedence regardless of the level at which the policy is bound. If a policy that is bound globally has a priority number of one and another policy bound to a user has a priority number of two, the global policy takes precedence. A lower priority number gives the policy a higher precedence.
