Enables the Control Policy feature.

The Control Policy feature allows you to manage the permission boundaries of the folders or member accounts in a resource directory in a centralized manner. This feature is implemented based on the resource directory. You can use this feature to develop common or dedicated rules for access control. The Control Policy feature does not grant permissions but only defines permission boundaries. A member account in a resource directory can be used to access resources only after it is granted the required permissions by using the Resource Access Management (RAM) service. For more information, see Overview of the Control Policy feature.
