Define the Rule

This rule is defined by the element <PolicyRequirementRule xsi:type="basic:PrincipalNameString">, for policy requirements rules, and <PermitValueRule xsi:type="basic:PrincipalNameString">,, for permit value rules, with the follow attributes:

  • value - the string value to match
  • ignoreCase - a boolean flag indicating whether the match is not case-sensitive
Example Policy Requirement Rule using the PrincipalNameString Match Function
<PolicyRequirementRule xsi:type="basic:PrincipalNameString" value="jsmith" />

When used within as the policy requirement rule for an attribute policy this rule creates per-user attribute filtering policies.
