Editing a Rights Policy Template

To Edit a Rights Policy Template

  1. Log on to the computer with a user account that is a member of the local Administrators group.

  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Windows RMS, and then click Windows RMS Administration to open the Global Administration page.

  3. Next to the Web site on which you want to edit the rights policy template, click Administer RMS on this Web site.

  4. In the Administration links area, click Rights policy templates.

  5. Under Template name, click the name of the template to edit.

  6. In the Template identification area, modify the information in the Template name, Template description, and Rights request URL areas as appropriate.

  7. In the Users and groups area, do one or more of the following:

    • To add a user or group, in Add users or groups, type the valid e-mail address of a specific user or group to add, click Add, and then select the name in Current users or groups. In the Rights area, select all rights to be granted to the selected user or group.

    • To modify the rights of an existing user or group, select the name in Current users or groups, and then select or clear the rights check boxes, as appropriate.

    • To remove a user or group, select the name in Current users or groups, and then click Remove.

  8. In the Expiration policy area, edit the information to change when content licenses expire and when they must be renewed, as appropriate.

  9. In the Extended policy area, edit the information to change how content licenses are to be implemented, including the persistence of author rights, whether trusted browsers are supported, license persistence within the content, and enforcement of any application-specific data, as appropriate.

  10. In the Revocation policy area, select whether a revocation list is to be required for content that is created by using this template. If you select Require revocation, complete the following settings, as appropriate:

    • In URL, type the URL where the revocation list file is posted. If you need to support disconnected users or external users, this URL should be accessible from both the corporate network and the Internet. For more information, see "Implementing Revocation" earlier in this subject.

    • In Revocation list refresh interval, type the number of days that the revocation list remains valid. If a user has a copy of the revocation list that is older than this value, the user must obtain an updated revocation list to consume the content.

    • In Revocation list public key, type the path and file name of the public key file for the revocation list. For more information about this file, see "Inserting a Signature into a Revocation List" earlier in this subject.

    CautionCaution
    Be careful when implementing revocation. Based on the refresh interval that you specify, you must renew a revocation list periodically or it will automatically expire, preventing users from consuming content that requires that list. To ensure that you do not inadvertently prevent users from consuming content, carefully evaluate the interval you require for refreshing the revocation list. For more information, see "Managing Revocation" earlier in this subject.

  11. Click Submit.
