Policy Inheritance

The Inheritance setting is available only for organizations (including the Root organization). It allows you to specify how a policy is implemented when there are multiple applications attached to a specific organization. There are two choices:

  • All Applications and Repositories - The policy is applied to every application and repository below this level of the hierarchy.

  • Applications of the specified Application Categories in Root Organization/Organization - The policy is applied only to applications that have specific application categories assigned to them. With this setting, you select which application categories to use.

The latter choice lets you tailor the implementation of a policy to applications with similar characteristics by using application categories.

Inheritance Overrides

Checking these boxes allows you to override actions/notifications for this policy at lower levels.
