Question:

What is the significance if the PX.RULE values in the %IDENTITY_POLICY% attribute?

 

Answer:

The PX.RULES values like PX.RULE.wiam-imb;76;87, for example, are stored in the well-known attribute %IDENTITY_POLICY% as defined in your directory.xml:

<ImsManagedObjectAttr physicalname="street" description="Used by identity policy synch" displayname="Identity Policy" valuetype="String" multivalued="true" wellknown="%IDENTITY_POLICY%" maxlength="0" hidden="true" system="true">

The primary use of the PX-RULE values is for tracking both Xpress Policies and Identity Policies and whether they have been applied to the user and whether they need to be run only once, according to the policies' configurations.
