    Question Force replication of policies inheriting from Default Rack?

    I noticed policies are not the same in additional racks that inherit from the Default, which it's configured that way. Is there a way to 'force sync' so all racks inherit policies for applications installed?

    The app is "inherited" in child policy for all apps that aren't installed in the child policy.
    For example, if web filter is in the parent, and not in the child, the child will use the parent's web filter.
    (The actual instance, not just the settings)

    You don't need to copy, just don't install the application.
    If you do install the application, it overrides the instance from the parent.

    ahhh okay. Perhaps a feature request?

    Might be beneficial to have the same apps installed in child containers, still inherit from default (with replication populated downwards) , but also be able to tighten up the policies in individual racks.

    Yes, that would be VERY helpful. It is a pain to replicate the whole config of the parent when you just want to change 1 or 2 things on the child.
