<Policy> Element (WSE for Microsoft .NET) (1)

Required element. Specifies a policy assertion.

Parent Elements

Element Description

<policyDocument> Element

The root element for a policy file.

The <policies> element can contain zero or more <Policy> Element (WSE for Microsoft .NET) (1) elements, which define a policy assertion. Each policy assertion can then be mapped to zero or more specific endpoints by adding <endpoint> Element elements to the <mappings> Element element.

The following code example defines a policy assertion named signed-body-username that requires the digital signing of the <Body> element, timestamp header, and all addressing headers by a UsernameToken and requires that SOAP messages sent to the http://www.cohowinery.com/usernamesigning.asmx endpoint adhere to the policy assertion.

Note:
This code example is designed to demonstrate WSE features and is not intended for production use.
