About hierarchy of policies and policy profiles

If you create a policy in a low-level administration group, the new policy inherits locked profiles of the active policy from the higher-level group. If several profiles have identical names, only the highest-level profile applies. Policy profiles for the higher-level group have higher priority. For example, in administration group A, policy P(A) has profiles X1, X2, and X3 (in descending order of priority). In administration group B, which is a subgroup of group A, policy P(B) has been created with profiles X2, X4, X5. Then policy P(B) will be modified with policy P(A) so that the list of profiles in policy P(B) will appear as follows: X1, X2, X3, X4, X5 (in descending order of priority). The priority of profile X2 will depend on the initial state of profile X2 of policy P(B) and profile X2 of policy P(A). After the policy P(B) is created, policy P(A) is no longer displayed in subgroup B.

The active policy is recalculated every time you run Network Agent, enable and disable offline mode, or edit the list of tags assigned to the device. For example, the amount of RAM has been increased on the device; this activated the policy profile that is applied on devices with large amount of RAM.
