Site Policies in SharePoint 2013



Here we will check about Site policies feature in SharePoint 2013. Also you can check:

- Retrieve all SharePoint list in SharePoint 2013 client object model

- Advantages of SharePoint 2013 Apps

- Create workflow using SharePoint designer 2013 in SharePoint 2013

Through Site Policies you can control the life cycle of a SharePoint site. Suppose your requirement is that you want a site should automatically delete after 6 months of date of creation. Or you want it should start a workflow automatically and then it should delete the site.  In this type of schenarious site policies will be helpful.

In SharePoint 2010, you could create only policies attached to content types or at the site collection level. But in SharePoint 2013, an new link on the name of Site Policies is available under Site Collection Administration in Site settings page.

Site policy has various option like:
- Do not close or delete the site automatically
- Delete the site automatically.
- Close the site automatically and delete the site automatically
- Run a workflow to close the site, and delete the site automatically

the 'Run a workflow to close the site, and delete the site automatically' feature is not available in SP 2013 RTM. It was available in beta but was pulled in RTM.
