When you define these resources with business-friendly names, policy authors can use them in policies without worrying about how the underlying information is retrieved and populated.

Organize elements in the Trust Framework hierarchically in tree structures. You can branch the tree for each type of element up to 20 levels deep.


You can define up to 4000 objects in each environment. This limit includes elements in the Trust Framework and also policies and rules. System-owned objects do not contribute to this limit.
