Whether it is to correct a small issue or update settings entirely, Areas can be edited and their properties modified after they are created.
Changes to Area names
Areas are shared across all sites within a System. If you are unable to rename an Area, this means that the Area is in use on other sites. This restriction prevents Administrators from making changes that impact sites they do not administer.
Only users with Site Administrator permissions on all sites within a System can make changes to the name of an Area.
If you are a System Administrator and cannot change an Area name, please contact Support for assistance.
PLEASE NOTE: Changes to the name of an Area are reflected in the history of policies that are assigned to the Area. Policy History is located at the bottom of any given policy for users with elevated permissions for the given policy (Owner, Approver or above).
Here you learned that Applicability can impact actions you can take with Areas. In the next section, we'll look at the other ways to manage Areas that might be used on other sites in your system.
