How does inheritance work?

To the Deployment Portal, inheritance is applicable in two areas:

  • Making package assignments
  • Customizing the RuntimeConfig.xml configuration file

For instance, inheritance means that when a you are placed in a department, you will inherit the package assignments and configuration settings made via the Deployment Portal for that department.

Conversely, if you leave that department, you would disinherit those assignments and settings.

Note: You can also make package assignments and customize configuration options for individuals. These assignments and settings remain with the individual no matter what department the individual is in.
