Notes & Warnings
The Check Policy tool matches filtering policies to the supplied user name or IP address. However, if Forcepoint has incorrectly identified the end user, then the Check Policy tool results will not match the actual policy applied.
I want to find out which policy is being applied to a client. How can I find this information?
Use the Check Policy tool, in the Forcepoint Security Manager Toolbox, to find out which policies apply to a particular client. The Check Policy tool will return multiple policies when:
In such a circumstance, the Use more restrictive blocking option selected on the Settings > Filtering page determines which policy is enforced for the user. See Filtering order in the Forcepoint Security Manager Help for details.
To determine which policies apply to a specific client:
The name of one or more policies is displayed in a popup window.
