What is inherited in organisational structures?

If you open the permissions for an organisational structure, the currently configured permissions will be visible. In the following example, there are a total of four roles with varying permissions for the organisational structure.

Relevant rights

The following options are required to view “inherit” and “overwrite” icons.

User right

  • Can overwrite permissions
  • Can inherit permissions

The two highlighted options are now available on the ribbon.

  • Inherit: This means that all of the configurations defined in the current permissions mask are inherited by underlying organisational structures when it is saved. The permissions are added to existing ones
  • Overwrite: This means that all of the configurations defined are applied to underlying organisational structures when it is saved. The previous permissions are lost.

Both mechanisms are protected by a confirmation prompt. If both “inherit” and also “overwrite” are selected, “overwrite” is considered the overriding function.
