Work on policies

Policies are contained in categories. They protect your enterprise data and help you control access to data and visualize data use. You can decide whether to enforce policies during catalog creation or at any time later on the catalog Settings page.

You can't create a policy without an existing category. You first have to create a category, then create and add policies to this category. Policy Manager only shows the policies of the catalog that belongs to the currently logged-in account.

To work on policies, you must be assigned the Admin role for the Watson Knowledge Catalog app. Open Catalog > Policy Manager, then:

A policy can have a status of Draft, Published, or Archived.

To view and monitor policy activities, open the Data Dashboard.
