Client Version Configuration

In addition to specifying the version of clients that you want to support in your environment, you can also specify a default action for clients that do not already have a version policy defined. This enables you to restrict which client versions are used in your environment, which can help you to control the costs associated with supporting multiple client versions.

Tasks you can perform

You can perform the following tasks on the Client Version Configuration page:

  • Edit the default ( Global) client version configuration.

  • Create client version configuration for a particular site.

  • Enable and disable existing client version configurations.


Because anonymous users are not associated with a site, anonymous users are affected by global-level policies only.
