Changing zone properties

After you create a zone, you can change its zone properties at any time. For example, if you want to change the parent zone for a child zone, you can do so by modifying the child zone’s properties. Depending on whether you are viewing a classic, hierarchical, or SFU zone and the components you have installed, you might see and be able to set different zone properties.

To display the properties for a zone:

  1. Open Access Manager.
  2. Expand Zones and the individual parent or child zones, as required, to locate and select the zone name for which you want to display properties.
  3. Right-click, then click Properties.

    If the zone you have selected is a hierarchical zone, the properties are organized on the following tabs.
