Zerion Identity Management
WHAT IS A ZIM POLICY?
A ZIM policy is a document that formally states one or more permissions. In its most basic sense, a policy lets you specify the following:
Actions: What actions you will allow a user to perform? Each Zerion Web Service has its own set of actions. For example, you might allow a user to create Dataflows. Unless otherwise specified that user would ONLY be allowed that single action within the Zerion Console.
Resources: Which resources you allow the action on. For example, what specific Dataflow will you allow the user access to? Users cannot access any resources that you have not explicitly granted permissions to.
Effect: What the effect will be when the user requests access — either allow or deny? Since the default is that resources are denied to users, you typically specify that you will allow users access to a resource.
