What are Access Rules (AR's)?
Access Rules and Custom Access Policies function together but are two separate items. Access Rules are one level above CAPs. The primary function of the Access Rule is to determine how the user or machine will be identified and the function of the CAP is what level of access the user or machine will have.
To visualize this, it's similar to going to a movie theater to watch a horror movie. Before you are allowed to purchase a ticket, you may have to prove that you are of the correct age. The movie theaters policy is to verify this by ID. If you are old enough, you are sold the ticket and you can now enter the Movie complex.
Congratulations, you have just passed through the 'Access Rules' section.
