When developing in our Partner Development Environment, the approval_status of a policy will always match the approval_status of the primary driver on the policy. So to force a policy to be a certain status, you should force a driver to that status first, and then create a policy with that driver as the primary driver.
The API can be used to make some modifications to a policy. Any of the following transactions can be made up to 48 hours after the currently scheduled end date and time of the policy; any attempts to make a change after that time will result in an error. Note that any changes made to a policy may change the price of the policy.
