How is the new ACS 5.0 policy model different from that of ACS 4.x?

With ACS 4.x it was very simple, just define your ‘groups’ apply permission to it.

Remember what programmers (C++) use “if and then conditions”, with ACS 5.x it’s something like that.

If <condition> then <result>

Configuring ACS 5.x is not that easy as it was in 4.x, not just the configuration part, ACS 5.x comes as an appliance or you can install it on VMware as well.
