Scenario 4 – Understanding Inheritance

This scenario illustrates the effect inheritance has on rights, what is viewable before and after breaking inheritance as well as resetting inheritance. Remember that you always require rights on the parent category if you want to view the objects in the category tree.

Setting up rights on different levels can be easy with inheritance. This scenario describes how inheritance can be used in different ways to ensure the correct rights exist for each role. The tables below show a parent category Level A with two child nodes, Level A1 and A1a.
