This guide introduces the features of the PingDataGovernance Policy Administration GUI (Policy Admin GUI), which is powered by Symphonic®. It provides information about creating access control policies that reflect your business requirements. It also provides a tour of the various concepts involved in modeling policies in the Policy Admin GUI.
To get started with the Policy Admin GUI, complete the following tasks:
Sign on to the Policy Admin GUI.
In demo environments, you can use the default credentials:
- User name: admin
- Password: password123
Create a branch.
This branch stores your policies and other entities.
Define the Trust Framework.
This allows you to define the elements that will form the building blocks of your policies – the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHY, and WHEN.
Define your policies and policy sets.
Build your policies to reflect your business needs.
Test polices and policy sets.
Verify that your policies correctly implement your business rules.
This creates a commit, which is an immutable representation of the Trust Framework and Policies at a point in time.
Create a deployment package.
This creates a file that can you deploy to PingDataGovernance Server instances across multiple environments.
After you sign on to the Policy Admin GUI, the system prompts you to set the branch on which to work. You can create a new (empty) branch, select an existing branch, or import a branch from a snapshot file.
The PingDataGovernance Policy Administration GUI embraces similar principles to general software source control. As such, it begins with the creation of a branch. When you first deploy the Policy Admin GUI, the Branches repository is empty, and the system prompts you to create or import a branch. You must complete one of these actions to continue using the product.
