Master profiles allow more flexible access rights within the IGEL UMS as they can override the settings for standard profiles and have their own authorizations.

Master profiles are prioritized the other way around compared to the standard profiles. This means that a competing profile setting has higher priority the further away from the object the profile is:

The following applies to master profiles:

higher-level directory


Rule: Master profiles override all standard profiles.

The following graphic shows that the master profile setting overrides that of the standard profiles if the same parameter is pre-populated. Settings that are not double-populated are effective without restriction.
