Scheme Policies Overview

With scheme policies, you can control which users, groups, or roles can use the /protect and /unprotect PEG API requests with specific encryption and presentation schemes. Scheme policies are created in the Privacera Portal.

Planning and Setup#

  • Be sure that you have created the users, groups, or roles whose access to the PEG API requests you want to control.
  • Decide on a mnemonic name for the scheme policy and a useful description of it.
  • Decide if you want the scheme policy to be in effect for only a certain validity time period.
  • You have two logical ways to allow access. Decide which way you want to use:
    • Give access to all roles or groups but deny access to specific other roles, groups, or users.
    • Deny access to all roles or groups but give access to specific other roles, groups, or users.
  • Decide if you want to use admin delegation for the specific users so that a service user can make PEG REST API requests on their behalf. For definitions, see Anatomy of a PEG API Request on Privacera Platform .
