Edit Your Policy in the Dashboard

In Oso Cloud, the policy is the beginning of your authorization journey. It describes the authorization models that are at play in your application.

We built the Policy Editor directly in the browser to minimize the number of steps needed to get a policy working for authorization.

Accessing the Editor

Navigate to the Policy page. The Policy Builder page is shown by default.

  • Use the Policy Builder to create a policy and use the save button to save it to your environment (optional).
  • Use the Skip to Editor button to start using the editor and begin writing your policy.

We provide inline error messages that alert you of mistakes as you type.

  • Hover over red underlined text to reveal the error message.
  • Click the save button once all edits are complete.

Note: The editor prevents you from saving polices that have errors.

The Policy Editor allows you to save and edit policies quickly. Once a policy is saved, it is immediately available for authorization.
