Viewing and managing configuration inheritance

Required license: Enterprise
By default, a child workspace inherits the subsetting configuration from its parent workspace. Any changes to the subsetting configuration in the parent workspace are copied to the child workspace.
If you make any change to the subsetting configuration in the child workspace, then it no longer inherits the subsetting configuration. The changes to the parent workspace do not affect the child workspace.
You can reset the child workspace to restore the inheritance.

Viewing and updating the inheritance status for a child workspace

For a child workspace, the Configuration tab on Table View indicates whether the child workspace currently inherits the configuration from the parent workspace.
Indicator that a child workspace inherits the parent workspace configuration
Inherits parent configuration means that the child workspace inherits the parent configuration.
Overrides parent configuration means that the child workspace overrides the parent configuration. Changes to the parent configuration are not copied to the child workspace.
For a child workspace that overrides its parent configuration, you can reset the inheritance. When you reset the inheritance, the overrides are removed from the subsetting configuration. Changes to the parent configuration are once again copied to the child workspace.
To reset the inheritance, in the Overrides parent configuration notice, click Reset, then on the confirmation dialog, click Reset again.
Option to reset the inheritance for a child workspace
The configuration overrides are removed. The child workspace inherits any subsequent configuration changes from the parent workspace.

Viewing the inheritance status for children of a parent workspace

For a parent workspace, you can view the current inheritance status of all of the child workspaces. When you change the subsetting configuration for a parent workspace, it applies to the child workspaces that have not overridden the subsetting configuration.
The Child Workspaces tab contains the list of child workspaces.
Child Workspaces tab for a parent workspace
For each workspace, the list includes:
  • The workspace name.
  • The inheritance status. Inheriting indicates that the child workspace inherits the configuration from the parent. Overriding indicates that the child workspace overrides the configuration and does not inherit it from the parent.
  • Your role in the child workspace.
  • The owner of the child workspace.
You cannot reset the inheritance status from the Child Workspaces tab. If you have access to a child workspace, to switch to that workspace, click the arrow icon in the rightmost column.
