The following overview summarizes all rules relating to the priority of profiles:

A - Basic rule

  • In the event that the same settings are specified a number of times, the profiles with higher priority override other profiles. See the graphic in the example.
  • Settings which are specified in one profile only are not overridden.
  • The priority rule only applies to general settings and fixed instances. If for example a number of free instances are set up, they will not be overridden – they will exist alongside each other.
  • If several profiles are assigned on an equal basis, the newer profile with the higher profile ID has priority.

B - Standard profiles

  • The closer the standard profile is to the device, the higher its priority.

C - Shared Workplace

  • The closer the standard profile is to the user, the higher its priority.
  • Profiles assigned to users have a higher priority than profiles assigned to devices.
  • Groups within a level are prioritized in alphabetical order.

D - Master profiles

  • Master profiles override all standard profiles.
  • Settings in master profiles can only be overwritten by master profiles.
  • Master profiles are prioritized the other way around compared to the standard profiles.
  • Master profiles which are closer to the object have lower priority.
  • Master profiles assigned to user groups have a higher priority than those assigned to individual users. These have higher priority than master profiles assigned to thin client directories. Master profiles assigned to an individual client have the lowest priority.
