Policy Configuration takes precedence over User Personalization (override)

Version 1

    Introduction

    In some circumstances you may wish to apply an EM Policy action to an applications virtual cache. For example, you may want to enforce a particular registry value for the Microsoft Office application group settings.

     

    Detail

    Once you have created the Process Start node (in this example winword.exe as it is grouped with all the Office applications) and one of the actions listed above, you will see the 'Personalization' tab as follows:

     

    This Personalization tab is only available at Process Start and only for the following policy actions:

     

    The two Personalization tab options are detailed below:

     

    Policy Configuration takes precedence over User Personalization - When selected, the Policy action is applied to the real registry or file system and the virtual cache. You can confirm this by looking in Personalization Analysis for the action you have configured, after the user has closed the application.

     

    User Personalization takes precedence over Policy Configuration - When selected, the Policy action is applied to the real registry or file system but not the virtual cache. As the application is personalized anyway, the existing Personalization cache settings will be used.

     

    Note: In the set registry value example, the registry value you are trying to set (override) using EM Policy needs to be in an 'included' location for your application.
