Policy enforcement overview

Once data usage labels have been applied to datasets, and data usage policies have been defined for marketing actions against those labels, Adobe Experience Platform Data Governance capabilities allow you to enforce those policies and prevent data operations that constitute policy violations.

There are two methods of policy enforcement provided by Data Governance features on Platform: API-based enforcement and automatic enforcement.

API-based enforcement

The Policy Service API provides endpoints that allow you to test marketing actions against datasets or arbitrary combinations of data usage labels in order to check if any policy violations occur. Based on the API response, you can then set up protocols within your experience application to appropriately enforce data usage policy compliance.

See the tutorial on API-based enforcement for steps on how to evaluate policies using the API.

Automatic enforcement

Experience Platform leverages data lineage, data classification, and policy management capabilities to automatically evaluate and surface policy violations. See the overview on automatic policy enforcement for more information.
