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 device directories. Master profiles assigned to an individual client have the lowest priority.
