Policy Instance

The is, decisiontree, query and compile APIs for the Aserto Hosted Authorizer take a Policy Instance argument from the calling application.

This parameter identifies the policy instance created in the Aserto Console. The "name" field is the policy instance name, and the "instanceLabel" field identifies the specific instance.


Currently, the Aserto Console only allows creating a single authorizer instance for each policy instance, with the instanceLabel set to name. Creating more than once instance label per policy instance is on the feature roadmap.

Setting the Policy Instance

POST .../api/v2/is

"policyInstance": {
"name": "[policy-name]",
"instanceLabel": "[instance-label]"
}, ...
