Create a data policy You can create a new data policy to define data rules for a table. About this task Create data policies to enforce consistency. You can create data policies only for tables and database views that are in the same scope as the data policy and for other tables that have at least one field in the same scope as the data policy. For tables that are in a different scope than the data policy record, you can create data policy rules only for fields in the same scope as the data policy and you cannot make a field mandatory. Procedure Navigate to System Policy > Rules > Data Policies. Alternatively, from any list header or form header, right-click in the header bar and select Configure > Data Policies. Click New. Select any options for the data policy. Create the condition that must exist for the platform to apply this policy. For example, your conditions might include [Problem state] [is] [Closed/Resolved] Right-click the header and select Save. The Data Policy Rules related list appears. Click New in the related list and create the record that identifies the field and the policy to apply. It is possible to have multiple rules on a single field, but it is not recommended. Click Submit. (Optional) Add more rules by repeating steps 6 and 7.
