Security Zone

Group data objects into zones for more efficient administration of security policies. Security zones can't span resources.

Security Zone Administration#

  • Security zones can only be created, updated, or deleted by a user with the ROLE_SYS_ADMIN role in Access Management.

  • Users can view, retrieve, and update policies only in security zones in which they have administrator privileges.

Security Zones Use in Authorization#

When a plugin authorizes an access request, it determines the zone in which the accessed resource resides. If the resource matches a security zone, only the policies of that security zone are used to authorize the access. If the resource does not match a security zone, the policies in the default (unnamed) security zone are used to authorize the access.
