# Core policies

Abstract

Overview of the policies that you can configure through the Core plugin.

The Core plugin contributes configuration policies that define behavior for the functionality provided by the plugin.

### Note

Do not extend or inherit from out-of-the-box policies; instead, create your own.

You can change the values of default policies by modifying the PolicySet JSON or the Environment JSON, depending on where the policy is defined, and then re-running Bootstrap.

The following policies can be configured through the Core plugin.

RedirectOnCreationPolicy

Determines whether a Business Tools user is redirected to the a new entity instance upon creation.

Presence of this policy in the authoring environment configuration .json file implements the action to redirect the business user to the newly created entity instance.

IgnorePublishedPolicy

Determines whether a request for an entity in a given environment applies without regards to the entity's publishing workflow state, that is, whether or not the entity is published to the Content Delivery role.

Presence of this policy in an environment configuration allows the environment to see all entities - unpublished or published. The IgnorePublishedPolicy policy is present in the default CommerceAuthoring and CommerceMinions environment .json files. The policy also affects entity caching and indexing processes.

When the Business Tools send a request to the Commerce Engine for an entity, the publishing status of the entity is ignored, and the request targets the latest version of the entity. Commerce engine minions process entities whether published or unpublished.

This policy is not used in the Shops environments. Requests to the Commerce Engine from storefronts always target published entities.

### Note

Do not extend or inherit from out-of-the-box policies; instead, create your own.

You can change the values of default policies by modifying the PolicySet JSON or the Environment JSON, depending on where the policy is defined, and then re-running Bootstrap.
