Testing your policy


The policy tester can be found in the portal:

  1. Select Policies in the left menu
  2. Click the policy you want to test
  3. In the action menu click Tester

In the the tester menu you need to specify the following information:

  • Identity: the users email you want to test
  • Source: the IP address from which the user originates
  • Time: the data/time you want test

Click the Test button to test the policy, the result should look something like this:


The API has a policy test endpoint that allows the Border0 administrator to test a policy. Using this API, the endpoint administrator can see if a user will be allowed access to a Socket and what actions are allowed

Given this example input file: testp.json

  "email": "[email protected]",
  "ip_address": "",
  "time": "2022-10-06T20:00:00Z"

We can now test the policy using curl like this (note that you need your API admin token).
The UUID in the curl command below is the UUID of the policy.

$ curl -s -d @testp.json  -H "x-access-token: $(cat ~/.mysocketio_token)"\
