Override or Revert an Object

In Panorama, you can nest device groups in a tree hierarchy of up to four levels. At the bottom level, a device group can have parent, grandparent, and great-grandparent device groups at successively higher levels—collectively called
ancestors
—from which the bottom-level device group inherits policies and objects. At the top level, a device group can have child, grandchild, and great-grandchild device groups—collectively called
descendants
. You can override an object in a descendant so that its values differ from those in an ancestor. This override capability is enabled by default. However, you cannot override shared or default (preconfigured) objects. The web interface displays the template-no-override.png icon to indicate an object has inherited values and displays the template-with-overrides.png icon to indicate an inherited object has overridden values.
  • Override an object
    —Select the
    Objects
    tab, select the descendant
    Device Group
    that will have the overridden version, select the object, click
    Override
    , and edit the settings. You cannot override
    Name
    or
    Shared
    settings for an object.
  • Revert an overridden object to its inherited values
    —Select the
    Objects
    tab, select the
    Device Group
    that has the overridden version, select the object, click
    Revert
    , and click
    Yes
    to confirm the operation.
  • Disable overrides for an object
    —Select the
    Objects
    tab, select the
    Device Group
    where the object resides, click the object Name to edit it, select
    Disable override
    , and click
    OK
    . Overrides for that object are then disabled in all device groups that inherit the object from the selected
    Device Group
    .
  • Replace all object overrides across Panorama with the values inherited from the Shared location or ancestor device groups
    —Select
    Panorama
    Setup
    Management
    , edit the Panorama Settings, select
    Ancestor Objects Take Precedence
    , and click
    OK
    . You must then commit to Panorama and to the device groups containing overrides to push the inherited values.
