Document Policy Example

This is an example which can help you better understand Document Policy.

The requirement is that IT manager would like to specify some important documents to back up before delete or modify by users. To achieve this, you can create a document policy like below:

1. Create a document policy.
2. Select the Allow mode, and check the operation of modify and delete.
3. Specify the File Name and check Backup before modify and Backup before delete.

Afterwards, documents contained specified keywords can be normal used, but will be backed up if they are modified or deleted. IT manager can view or save the backup using menu "Logs > Document" in SurveilStar Console.

Please note that: Backup may produce large amounts of data. So precise positioning is needed to avoid gobs of useless documents.
