Top Feature Mass Update Exceptions in Policy Manager

Organizations often require Segregation of Duties policy “waivers” for certain users such as IT support staff, service accounts for API integration, Robots and remote business units with limited users.  The Mass Update feature enables users to close the violations for such users and roles for all or some SoD policies by selecting the rules and applying to users and roles. This capability minimizes the effort to maintain exceptions by using the mass update exceptions feature.

For those customers using AccessPaaS™ Policy Manager the following feature ranks third on our Top Ten most used features list.
