AM 7.5.0


Authorization policies let AM determine whether to grant a subject access to a resource.

A policy defines the following:


The resource to which access is restricted, such as a web page, a mobile app, or a boarding area in an airport.


The verbs that describe what users can do to the resource, such as read a web page, submit a web form, or access a boarding area.

subject conditions

Who the policy applies to, such as all authenticated users, only administrators, or only passengers with valid tickets for planes leaving soon.

environment conditions

The circumstances under which the policy applies, such as only during work hours, only when accessing from a specific IP address, or only when the flight is scheduled to leave within the next four hours.

response attributes

Information that AM attaches to a response following a policy decision, such as a name, email address, or frequent flyer status.

Policy conditions don’t determine the outcome of the policy but determine whether a specific policy is applicable and whether its actions should contribute towards the overall policy decision. If a condition fails (due to authentication failure, for example), AM disregards the corresponding policy and assesses any other configured policies to make the authorization decision.
