Configure Registry Policies

When you select a policy file, its contents will be displayed and you can set new policies. If a policy requires additional data, a detailed policy window is displayed in which you can type data. When typing textual data in this window, it is possible to use variables such as "%username%" or "%homedrive%".

You can specify the order in which registry files and policies should be processed with the Change order of execution option.

When policies have been set (switched on or off), the menu item View resulting registry in the Policy window enables you to view the registry keys and values that result from the policies. It is also possible to export these keys and values to a registry file for later use.

The policy template will be copied to the Datastore, which allows it to be used at all times and on all servers.

  • Click New Policy, this will open the Select ADM file window.
  • Select the policy file on which the template will be based. You can select ADM files and ADMX files, which are XML-based.
    • Alternatively, click Add or Remove to add or remove ADM(X) files.
  • Click OK. This will open the New registry setting (based on <ADM file>) window.
  • Click the Properties tab.
    • Enter the name of the registry setting in the Name field.
    • Optionally enter a note in the Administrative note field.
    • To enable the registry setting, select Enabled.
    • Select Run once to limit implementation of the registry setting to a user's first startup.
    • Expand the contents of the ADM file.
    • Double-click a setting to view its details or right-click the setting and click Explanation to view an explanation of the setting.
  • Click the Access Control tab to configure the Access Control criteria of the registry setting.
  • Click the Workspace Control tab to configure to which Workspace Container(s) the registry setting applies.

In the New Registry Setting window, click OK to save the Registry Policy configuration, or Cancel to discard the changes. When selecting Cancel, a prompt appears to confirm for changes to be saved or not.
