Specifies an information management policy that can be applied to a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 list or content type.

  Id = "Text"
  Local = "TRUE" | "FALSE" >




Required Text. The globally unique identifier (GUID) of the policy.

If you create a policy by using the SharePoint Server 2010 user interface, this GUID is automatically generated by SharePoint Server 2010. However, if you create the policy XML manually, you must supply a GUID.


Optional Boolean. TRUE if the policy is not based on a site policy; otherwise, FALSE.

An information management policy is a set of rules for a certain type of important content. Policy enables administrators to control and evaluate who can access the content, how long to retain information, and how effectively people are complying with the policy.
