Where are Policies in Schema Browser

I have recently installed Toad 12.5. I can no longer find the Policies tab in the Schema Browser. I right-clicked Configure and did not find it in the list of available options either. How do I get to Policies.


Does your license key include the DBA Module? The DBA module is required for a handful of object types: Contexts, dimensions, Libraries, policies, policy groups, flashback archives, audit policies, refresh groups, and redaction policies.

main menu -> help -> about - does the text with DB admin module show up under toad edition info …

It does not. It says I have Xpert Edition but no DBA Module Add-Ons. Hmmm. I assumed it was just a version change since Dell took over. I will have to find out. Thank you.

If you do not see “with DB Admin Module” under help about then your license code does not inlcude it - i.e. you did not buy it. There had been no change since Dell took over or with the newer version(s) of Toad in this regard - although we have moved some feature down from DB Admin module back into bacic edition over time. But this is not one of them. My advice is to call your sales rep and see if you paid for DB Admin module and if so - then get a new license key which enables this. You would just enter the key - no need to reinstall …
