When a policy is applied to a request or response, the policy result might include one or more advices. An advice is a directive that instructs the policy enforcement point to perform additional processing in conjunction with an authorization decision.
Advices allow the policy enforcement point—PingAuthorize Server, in this case—to do more than allow or deny access to an API resource. For example, an advice might cause the removal of a specific set of fields from a response.
You can add an advice directly to a single policy or rule, as well as modify that advice as part of a policy definition. You can also add an advice in Components for use with multiple policies or rules.
This section describes the advice types built into PingAuthorize Server.
