Security Policies - Policy Priority | Admin Guide - Zoho One

Reorder policy priority

Because multiple policies can be added to a group, policy priority plays an important part in deciding which policies will be applied to a user.

Let's look at an example to understand policy priority. The group "Weekend Shift" has four members: Amelia, Arthur, David, and Eduardo. The group has two policies, Policy A and Policy B, applied to it. Arthur is excluded from Policy A, David is excluded from Policy B, and Amelia is excluded from both.

In addition to the two policies, there is also a Default Policy applied to all users in the organization. It will have the lowest priority, and it can't be re-ordered, disabled, or deleted.

Default Policy





Default Policy and Policy A have a password policy configured, and Policy B has a password policy and MFA configured.

Policy priority works top to bottom. When a user has more than one applicable policy, the top policy will be applied. If the top policy doesn't have one or more of the components (Password policy, MFA, Allowed IPs, Session management) configured, then those missing components will be applied from the policy with the next highest priority.

In our example, Amelia will have only the Default Policy applied to her, Arthur will have Policy B applied to him, David will have Policy A applied to him, and Eduardo will have A's password policy and B's MFA policy applied to him.
