Oracle Fusion Middleware Security for Web Services 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.6) Policy Sets

Oracle Fusion Middleware Security  for Web Services 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.6) Policy Sets

Policy sets provide a means to attach policies globally to a range of endpoints of the same type. 



  • In addition to attaching policies directly to endpoints, you can create policy sets that allow you to attach policies globally to a range of endpoints of the same type, regardless of the deployment state. You can create and manage policy sets using both Fusion Middleware Control and the WebLogic Scripting Tool, WLST. 
  • Attaching policies globally using policy sets allows an administrator to ensure that all subjects are secured in situations where the developer, assembler, or deployer did not explicitly specify the policies to be attached.
  • Policies attached globally using policy sets also provide the following:
    • Override the policies
    • Specify run time constraint
  • Policy subjects to which policy sets can be attached include SOA components, SOA service endpoints, SOA references, Web services endpoints, Web service clients, Web service connections, and asynchronous callback clients. Policy sets can be attached at the following scopes:
    • Domain — all policy subjects of the specified type in a domain
    • Server instance—all policy subjects of the specified type in a server instance
    • Application or Partition—all policy subjects of the specified type in an application or SOA partition
    • Application module or SOA composite—all policy subjects of the specified type in an application module or SOA composite
    • Service or reference—all policy subjects of the specified type in a SOA service or reference
    • Port or component—all policy subjects of the specified type in a port or SOA component
