Application Security Manager has a policy merge option to combine two security policies. In the merge process, the system compares, and then merges, specific features from one security policy to another.
The merge mechanism is lenient when merging security policies. The system resolves any conflicts that occur by using the more open settings in the target security policy. When the merge is complete, the system shows the results of the merge process.
You can perform the merge in two ways:
|Work on Original||Incorporate changes to one (or both) of the original security policies depending on the merge options you select without making a copy of it.|
|Make a Copy||Make a copy of the security policy into which you are incorporating changes.|
|Work on Copy||Work on a copy of the original security policy. First, a copy is made, then incorporate possible changes on the original policies. If comparing one or more policies with Policy Builder enabled, this option is automatically selected (and the other options become unavailable).|
