Inheritance

Titan FTP supports the ability to set Shared Attributes at the Server, Group, or User level.

If an attribute is set at the Server level, every Group can inherit the value.

If an attribute is set at the Group level, every user who is a member of that group can inherit the value.

Inheritance at the Group and User level is controlled by the Use Inherited Setting check box. For certain attributes, such as directory permissions and virtual folders, the Server and Group level values are always inherited.

Advantages of Using Inherited Settings

Setting attribute values at the Server or Group level and then enabling Use Inherited settings at the Group or User level provides several advantages, including organization and simplification.

Rather than setting values for each user, you can set these values at the Server or Group level and minimize the amount of work required when you add new users or update attribute values.
