Configurable policy settings for user profile properties


Each user profile in SharePoint Server 2010 contains 46 default user profile properties. These user profile properties store information about a user. An administrator can apply a policy to a user profile property to configure how personal information is used. Depending on the selected user profile property, some policy settings are configurable, while others are not.
Use the table that follows as a guide to understand which properties are configurable and which are not:
  • ·         The column for Policy Setting indicates whether the default value for Policy Setting is configurable. The values for Policy Setting are Required, Optional, or Disabled.
  • ·         The column for Default Privacy Setting indicates whether the default value for Default Privacy Setting is configurable. The values for Default Privacy Setting are Only Me, My Manager, My Team, My Colleagues, Everyone.
  • ·         The column for User can override indicates whether the checkbox to allow users to override a value is configurable. The values are Yes or No.
  • ·         The column for Replicable indicates whether the checkbox to replicate user information across all sites is configurable. The values are Yes or No.
