How are rules inherited?

What rules do you get?

Basically all valid rules for any user at any point in time are collected, sorted (by priority) and filtered to ensure that each user always get the "correct" set of rules.

The actual inheritance

The system determines the relevant objects to include by determining MAC ( the device), which location the device is in ( Hotspot or Public Network ), which Access Controller that holds this location and the network that this access controller is "homed in" as well as which network the HotSpot or Public Network is "homed in".

Further more as a Location can participate in several networks, any other networks where this Location is member will also be included.

Once all valid rules (taking into account time of day and day of week), for all the objects are collected, they are sorted in priority order and then sent to the Access Controller.
