The policies section allows you to define where Tyk can find its policy templates. Policy templates are similar to key definitions in that they allow you to set quotas, access rights and rate limits for keys.

Policies are loaded when Tyk starts and if changed require a hot-reload so they are loaded into memory.

A policy can be defined in a file (stand alone mode) or from the same database as the Dashboard.
