Create a policy

This document describes how to programmatically get information about existing policies and to create a new policy.

Before continuing, ensure you are familiar with:

The remainder of this document assumes that you have already authenticated the user and have obtained the authentication token necessary to invoke subsequent endpoints.

Get information about policies

Before creating a new policy, you must obtain information about each existing policy. This is necessary because when you save a new policy, you will save the entire list ("block") of policies.

Begin by invoking the /Policy/GetUsingCloudMobileGP endpoint:

POST https://mytenant.idaptive.app/Policy/GetUsingCloudMobileGP

The response contains information about the tenant:

{  
	"success":true,
	"Result":{  
		"useCloudGP":true,
		"useCloudCA":false,
		"refreshInterval":15,
		"gpUpdateInterval":300,
		"activeDirectoryCA":"Test1.mytenant.idaptive.app\\GLOBAL-1",
		"cloudOuManagement":true,
		"hasProxy":true,
		"boundMobileForest":"mytenant.idaptive.app",
		"hideMobilePolicyForAD":true
	},
	"Message":null,
	"MessageID":null,
	"Exception":null,
	"ErrorID":null,
	"ErrorCode":null,
	"InnerExceptions":null
}

Invoke the /Policy/GetNicePlinks endpoint:

POST https://mytenant.idaptive.app/policy/getniceplinks

{  
	"Args":{  
		"PageNumber":1,
		"PageSize":100000,
		"Limit":100000,
		"SortBy":"",
		"direction":"False",
		"Caching":-1
	}
}

The Results collection in the response contains information about each existing policy:

{  
	"success":true,
	"Result":{  
		"Columns":[  
			{  
				"Name":"Params",
				"IsHidden":false,
				"DDName":null,
				"Title":"Params",
				"DDTitle":null,
				"Description":null,
				"Type":16,
				"Format":null,
				"Width":0,
				"TableKey":null,
				"ForeignKey":null,
				"TableName":null
			},
			...
		],
		"RevStamp":"636589028480000000",
		"Count":31,
		"Results":[  
			{  
				"Entities":[  
					{  
						"Type":"PolicyLink",
						"Key":"/Policy/PolicySet_12",
						"IsForeignKey":false
					}
				],
				"Row":{  
					"Params":[  

					],
					"ID":"/Policy/PolicySet_12",
					"EnableCompliant":true,
					"Description":"",
					"LinkType":"Global",
					"PolicySet":"/Policy/PolicySet_12"
				}
			},
			{  
				"Entities":[  
					{  
						"Type":"PolicyLink",
						"Key":"/Policy/louie1",
						"IsForeignKey":false
					}
				],
				"Row":{  
					"Params":[  
						"Device|@Active Devices"
					],
					"ID":"/Policy/louie1",
					"EnableCompliant":true,
					"Description":"",
					"LinkType":"Collection",
					"PolicySet":"/Policy/louie1"
				}
			},
			...
		],
		"FullCount":31,
		"ReturnID":"",
		"IsAggregate":false
	},
	"Message":null,
	...
}

Invoke the /Policy/GetPolicyModifiers endpoint:

POST https://corp.my.idaptive.app//Policy/GetAuthPolicyModifiers

The Result element in the response contains the names of the policy modifiers:

{  
	"success":true,
	"Result":[  
		"test1"
	],
	"Message":null,
	"MessageID":null,
	"Exception":null,
	"ErrorID":null,
	"ErrorCode":null,
	"InnerExceptions":null
}

Create a new policy

Gather the information to create a new plink to representing the new policy (for information about plnks, see /Policy/GetNicePlinks ). Add this new plink to the JSON list of plinks returned from the call to /Policy/GetNicePlinks.

Save the policy block

Invoke the /policy/savepolicyblock3 endpoint to save and pass the plinks in the body to save all of the policy blocks:

POST https://corp.my.idaptive.app/policy/savepolicyblock3

{  
	"plinks":[  
		{  
			"Description":"test",
			"PolicySet":"/Policy/PolicySet_1",
			"LinkType":"Global",
			"Priority":1,
			"Params":[  

			],
			"Filters":[  

			],
			"Allowedpolicies":[  

			]
		},
		{  
			"Params":[  

			],
			"ID":"/Policy/PolicySet_12",
			"EnableCompliant":true,
			"Description":"",
			"LinkType":"Global",
			"PolicySet":"/Policy/PolicySet_12"
		},
		{  
			"Params":[  
				"Device|@Active Devices"
			],
			"ID":"/Policy/louie1",
			"EnableCompliant":true,
			"Description":"",
			"LinkType":"Collection",
			"PolicySet":"/Policy/louie1"
		},
		...
	],
	"policy":{  
		"Path":"/Policy/PolicySet_1",
		"Version":1,
		"Description":"test",
		"Settings":{  

		},
		"Newpolicy":true
	}
}

The success field in the response indicates whether the save was successful and the RevStamp indicates the revision number of the policy block save:

{  
	"success":true,
	"Result":{  
		"RevStamp":"636592282940000000"
	},
	"Message":null,
	"MessageID":null,
	"Exception":null,
	"ErrorID":null,
	"ErrorCode":null,
	"InnerExceptions":null
}
