Assign policies to administrators, users, and groups

You can assign user policies to any number of groups, administrators, and users, but each administrator and user can have only one user policy of each type assigned to them. A policy assigned directly to a user or administrator takes precedence over policies assigned to groups that the user or administrator belongs to. If no policy is assigned directly to an administrator or user and the administrator or user belongs to two or more groups that are assigned different policies of the same type, the highest ranked of the assigned polices is applied to the administrator and user.
Each log in to the management console is evaluated against the policies that are assigned to administrators and users, in order, until a policy that is assigned matches. If no policy is assigned to the administrator or user directly, or through a group that they are a member of, the default policy is applied and they can only sign in to the
console using their
password. The enhanced authentication policies are applied to administrators and users in the following order:
  • User policy app exceptions
  • User policy
  • Tenant app policy
  • Default policy
