Introduction to policies

A policy defines a specific set of subjects and it is allowed to perform certain actions on designated resources or resource groups. A set of actions and resources are bound by a rule, and a policy can have multiple rules.

Subjects are users or user groups who are allowed to perform certain actions on certain resources.

A rule is just a container that holds a tuple of actions and resources or resource groups. A policy can contain multiple rules. For more information on Resource Groups, refer to the section Creating a new Resource group.
