About the Policy Templates Page

NOTE: From the SSE 6.6.2 release, the Policy Templates that contain Data Identifiers (legacy DLP features) are available to users who have already defined DLP policies using these templates. It will not be available to other users. Skyhigh recommends using classifications to define rules in your DLP policies. For details, see About Classifications.

The Policy Templates page allows you to search or filter the many available Policy Templates, apply those templates to your data, and create policies from a template.

On the Policy > Policy Templates page, you can display templates in two views: the Category View and the Table View.
