Using predefined application metering policies

(Windows only)

You use several predefined application metering policies if you want to meter common applications such as Microsoft Office products. You can enable the predefined policies that you want to use as they are. If you want to configure predefined policies to meet your needs, Symantec recommends that you clone an original predefined policy and then configure the copy.

For application metering policies to work, you must have the Symantec Management Agent, the Inventory Plug-in, and the Application Metering Plug-in installed on target computers.

This task is a step in the process for metering and denying applications.

See Metering and denying applications.

To enable predefined application metering policies

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Manage menu, click Policies.

  2. In the left pane, expand Software > Application Metering > Samples, and then click the predefined application metering policy that you want to use.

  3. On the policy page, enable the policy by turning it on.

    At the upper right of the page, click the colored circle, and then click On.

  4. Click Save changes.

To clone and configure predefined application metering policies

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, browse to the predefined application metering policy that you want to clone.

  2. Right-click the policy, and click Clone.

  3. Give the cloned policy a unique name, and click OK.

  4. On the policy page, configure the policy options according to your needs.

    You perform this step the same way you do when you configure the application metering policies that you have created from scratch.

    See Creating and configuring application metering policies.

  5. On the policy page, enable the policy by turning it on.

    At the upper right of the page, click the colored circle, and then click On.

  6. Click Save changes.
