Policy Library Overview

Add more specific checks to your account

Updated over a week ago

DubBot's Policy Library allows for simple point and click implementation of more specific checks for your account. This library is populated with the most often requested policies (custom checks) of our customers.

It also allows you to see how the policies are structured to assist you with your own custom policies in the future. It will be updated regularly, so check back for new policies that might be helpful to your organization.

Where to find the Library

To find the Policy Library, select Settings from the top menu, and from the left-hand navigation under Account Checks Settings, select Policies.

Policy Library Options

If you already have the policy set added, you will see a button to Remove Set. If it is a policy set that you haven't already added, you'll see a button to Import Set. Some policy sets have been tagged to make them easier to find as the Policy Library grows. A few of the current tag options are SEO, Website Security, and DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion).
