Installing an IBM Guardium Policy

Any new or edited policy in IBM® Guardium® must be installed before the updated alert actions or rule changes can occur.


  1. Click the Administration Console tab.
  2. From the left navigation, select Configuration > Policy Installation.
  3. From the Policy Installer pane, select a policy that you modified in Configuring policies to generate syslog events.
  4. From the drop-down list, select Install and Override.

    A confirmation is displayed to install the policy to all Inspection Engines.

  5. Click OK.

    For more information on installing a policy, see your IBM InfoSphere® Guardium vendor documentation. After you install all of your policies, you are ready to configure the data source in the QRadar product.
