In its latest release, TITUS Metadata Security for SharePoint Version 3.2 has greatly increased the support for SharePoint Managed Metadata. In particular, TITUS Metadata Security can work with managed metadata terms in a more meaningful way as part of the conditions that it evaluates when determining if a specific policy needs to be enforced on a document or item. These conditions which can be part of any policy are referred to as “Conditional Expressions”.
For many versions, TITUS Metadata Security has been able to use any metadata column and any metadata field type as part of its conditional expressions. When authoring a policy and specifying a conditional expression, an administrator could choose any column that was currently configured for the list or library. For example, a conditional expression of [Classification] = “Secret” meant that for a particular item in the list or library if the Classification column was set to a value of “Secret” then TITUS Metadata Security would enforce that policy on that item. And in this case, the “Classification” column could be a managed metadata column type. However, in previous versions, the comparison between the value of this column and the conditional expression in the policy was simply a text comparison.
