Controlling Traffic based on Users and Groups

After reviewing the traffic patterns of the users, it may be necessary to implement optimization policies to ensure a positive user experience for key applications or traffic types. By limiting the traffic usage for a specific group of users, network availability can be increased for other user groups.


Active Directory must be configured before optimization policies can target specific users and groups. For more information refer to Integrate with Active Directory.
