Cancel policies

You can set a policy to cancel at any time from within the policy. You can configure reasons for cancellation on the Cancellation tab of the Policy Lifecycle settings dialog box.

You can also select when BriteCore should process the cancellation. Table 1 summarizes the four options for when to cancel a policy.
