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)
    • Group
    • 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.
