Configuring Assignment Policy

Security Note:

To edit assignment policies, your security group will need one of the following permissions set in Group Administration for that object type:

  • Admin: 10.0. Set Location Assignment Policy
  • Admin 11.5 Set Resource Assignment Policy

Assignment Policy determines who is allowed to request, assign, unassign, and approve objects. Locations and resources are the only 25Live objects that use assignment policy. 

When editing assignment policy, you can choose to set it for one group at a time or multiple groups.
