Elevation Policies

Distinct from allow policies where applications are simply allowed to run with default user level privileges, an Elevation Policy will apply Administrator credentials to specified applications. This type of policy is often paired with allowlisting to save IT Administrators time when many employees must perform trusted tasks that require Administrator credentials to complete, like installing a trusted application (Adobe) or device (printer).

In Privilege Manager v10.7 the Restrict File Dialogs action has been added to the product. Delinea recommends using this action on elevation policies to prevent the misuse of file open and save dialogs for elevated applications.
