This configuration parameter is only applicable for classic zones to specify whether authorization services are enabled or disabled. In hierarchical zones, which must have agents version 5.x or later, this parameter is not applicable and is ignored. In classic zones, however, authorization is an optional feature that can be explicitly enabled or disabled.
In classic zones, users can log on as long as they have a profile in a zone. In hierarchical zones, users must be assigned to a role that grants them permission to log on. If you have agents that are joined to a classic zone, you can set this parameter to false to explicitly prevent the agent from looking up authorization information to reduce network traffic.
If you have agents from version 4.x, the default value for this parameter is true. This parameter is not defined for agents version 5.x and later.
