Data Policy

Data Policy enables System Administrators to apply default values, mandatory fields, and lookup validations to a specific table. These policies, once set, are enforced across the entire system, regardless of what form is being used to display the data.

Format Control performs many common data tailoring tasks in HPE Service Manager, is often complex, and is applied at the form level. If overused, Format Control can affect system performance. Data Policy operates at the table level and achieves many of the same results as Format Control without the complexity and without taxing system resources.
