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