The Inherit Mask


The INHERIT mask is automatically inserted into the dependent child column whenever the parent or child column in a dependency is marked as Sensitive.

DataVeil shall automatically maintain the same sensitivity setting in both columns of a dependency (unless you disable a dependency, see Disabling a Dependency for more information.)

In the case of nested dependencies, e.g. a column in one Table is dependent on a column in a second Table which is dependent on a column in a third Table, DataVeil shall insert INHERIT masks in all columns except the root column of the dependency chain.

Note: You cannot explicitly add an INHERIT mask yourself. These are always maintained automatically by DataVeil according to defined dependencies and their enabled state.
