XF 2.2 Xenforo Inherit permission


New member
I was looking for an easier way to set up permissions on my website, and I found inherit permissions. How do they work?
Basically if a user has more than 1 permission (e.g. assigned to 2 user groups), then the "best" permission is applied.

A "never" permission in any user group overrules all other permissions, so the user does not have that permission.

Edit: If you talk about node permissions, see https://xenforo.com/docs/xf2/groups-permissions/#node-permissions

Initially, these permissions are inherited from the global permission values. If you customize a permission for a particular node, that new value will now be inherited by any child nodes as well, unless they too customize the value.
