How to Manage Inherited Policies in Suborganizations

When you create a suborganization, certain policies will be inherited from its parent. Inherited policies can only be managed by higher-level organization administrators. If you assign an organization administrator to a specific suborganization, he or she will not see inherited policies in the Policies page, regardless of whether this policy is turned on or off. The purpose of inherited policies is to allow higher-level organization administrators to appropriately manage organizations while still enabling lower-level organization administrators to support their assigned suborganizations.

For example, when you create a new suborganization under a parent organization:

  • If an inherited policy is turned on in the parent organization, you will be given the option of turning on or off this inherited policy when creating a new suborganization.

  • If an inherited policy is turned off in the parent organization, you will not be given the option of configuring this policy when creating a new suborganization. This policy must first be turned on in the parent organization.

For existing suborganizations:

  • If you turn off an inherited policy in a parent organization, this policy will also be turned off in any existing suborganizations. Only you or another higher-level organization administrator can turn on this policy in the suborganization.

  • If you turn on an inherited policy in a parent organization, any existing suborganizations will not be affected. The policy will remain turned off in any of these suborganizations, unless specifically changed within the suborganization.

Use the tables below to identify inherited policies.

Note

Policies that are marked as inherited can only be managed by higher-level organization administrators. If you assign an organization administrator to a specific suborganization, he or she will not see inherited policies in the Policies page, regardless of whether these policies are turned on or off.
