With this procedure, you create security policies with attributes, for which you explicitly do not want to use the default value. For example, you assign a new security policy called Digits, and change, as described below, the standard value for the attribute MIN_PASSWORD_DIGITS from 0 to 4. The new security policy Digits then uses the standard values for all security policy attributes, with the exception of the attribute MIN_PASSWORD_DIGITS. You can, however, also create a security policy without defining attributes. This policy then uses the default values for all security policy attributes.
The change view for attributes appears.
Once you have specified all of the attributes to be changed, you can display the attribute values that actually apply for the policy. To do this, choose the Effective... pushbutton. The system displays both the attributes that you changed and the attributes that have been retained with default values in the security policy.
The system automatically performs a consistency check and displays all entries with problems. If there are any problems, you must correct these before the system can save your new policy.
