1.3 Structure Overview (Synopsis)

The XML structure (as described in [XSD1.1-1] and [XSD1.1-2])  defined in this document describes the Microsoft Authorization Manager (AzMan) policy. AzMan policy files are typically used in two ways:

  1. Loaded by the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Authorization Manager (AzMan) snap-in which allows the administrator to create and modify the authorization manager policy.

  2. Loaded by the authorization manager runtime to allow applications to make authorization decisions.
