Operator Policy

Controls where endpoints can be used

An Operator Policy contains a set of rules or preferences which controls the countries and networks which can be used. A single Operator Policy is selected for each Endpoint Group - which then applies to all Endpoints within the group. Operator policies aren't mandatory - if an operator policy is not selected for a group, the contained endpoints will be able to connect to any available network.

Operator Policies can contain rules at one of three levels.

  1. Global - allows a default behaviour to be defined, which applies to all networks and countries if not configured otherwise. The global behaviour can be 'Allow' or 'Reject'.
  2. Country - allows the Global behaviour to be overridden for particular countries. This can be 'Inherit' (rely on the Global configuration), 'Allow', or 'Reject'.
  3. Operator - allows the Country and Global behaviour to be overridden for particular operators. This can be 'Inherit' (rely on the Country and/or Global configuration), 'Allow', 'Reject' or 'Fallback'. If configured as 'Fallback', the Endpoint will be allowed to attach to the selected network if it appears that it is out of coverage for any 'Allowed' networks.

Once you have created an Operator Policy, it needs to be selected on the Endpoint Groups you want it to apply to. An Operator Policy not associated with any group won't have any effect.

Note that changes to the operator policy do not immediately affect Endpoints which are already connected to the network. The next time the check in with the network (usually every few hours), the new policy will be applied.
