Updates whether a policy category is set to mandate database subscriptions. If subscription is mandated, the policy category applies to all databases.
Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version).
Requires membership in the PolicyAdministratorRole fixed database role.
Possible elevation of credentials: Users in the PolicyAdministratorRole role can create server triggers and schedule policy executions that can affect the operation of the instance of the Database Engine. For example, users in the PolicyAdministratorRole role can create a policy that can prevent most objects from being created in the Database Engine. Because of this possible elevation of credentials, the PolicyAdministratorRole role should be granted only to users who are trusted with controlling the configuration of the Database Engine.
The following example updates the 'Finance' category to mandate database subscriptions.
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_syspolicy_update_policy_category @name = N'Finance' , @mandate_database_subscriptions = 1; GO
