bool? inheritFromParent
read / write

Determines the inheritance behavior for this Policy.

By default, a ListPolicy set at a resource supersedes any Policy set anywhere up the resource hierarchy. However, if inherit_from_parent is set to true, then the values from the effective Policy of the parent resource are inherited, meaning the values set in this Policy are added to the values inherited up the hierarchy. Setting Policy hierarchies that inherit both allowed values and denied values isn't recommended in most circumstances to keep the configuration simple and understandable. However, it is possible to set a Policy with allowed_values set that inherits a Policy with denied_values set. In this case, the values that are allowed must be in allowed_values and not present in denied_values. For example, suppose you have a Constraint constraints/serviceuser.services, which has a constraint_type of list_constraint, and with constraint_default set to ALLOW. Suppose that at the Organization level, a Policy is applied that restricts the allowed API activations to {E1, E2}. Then, if a Policy is applied to a project below the Organization that has inherit_from_parent set to false and field all_values set to DENY, then an attempt to activate any API will be denied. The following examples demonstrate different possible layerings for projects/bar parented by organizations/foo: Example 1 (no inherited values): organizations/foo has a Policy with values: {allowed_values: "E1" allowed_values:"E2"} projects/bar has inherit_from_parent false and values: {allowed_values: "E3" allowed_values: "E4"} The accepted values at organizations/foo are E1, E2. The accepted values at projects/bar are E3, and E4. Example 2 (inherited values): organizations/foo has a Policy with values: {allowed_values: "E1" allowed_values:"E2"} projects/bar has a Policy with values: {value: "E3" value: "E4" inherit_from_parent: true} The accepted values at organizations/foo are E1, E2. The accepted values at projects/bar are E1, E2, E3, and E4. Example 3 (inheriting both allowed and denied values): organizations/foo has a Policy with values: {allowed_values: "E1" allowed_values: "E2"} projects/bar has a Policy with: {denied_values: "E1"} The accepted values at organizations/foo are E1, E2. The value accepted at projects/bar is E2. Example 4 (RestoreDefault): organizations/foo has a Policy with values: {allowed_values: "E1" allowed_values:"E2"} projects/bar has a Policy with values: {RestoreDefault: {}} The accepted values at organizations/foo are E1, E2. The accepted values at projects/bar are either all or none depending on the value of constraint_default (if ALLOW, all; if DENY, none). Example 5 (no policy inherits parent policy): organizations/foo has no Policy set. projects/bar has no Policy set. The accepted values at both levels are either all or none depending on the value of constraint_default (if ALLOW, all; if DENY, none). Example 6 (ListConstraint allowing all): organizations/foo has a Policy with values: {allowed_values: "E1" allowed_values: "E2"} projects/bar has a Policy with: {all: ALLOW} The accepted values at organizations/foo are E1, E2. Any value is accepted atprojects/bar. Example 7 (ListConstraint allowing none):organizations/foohas aPolicywith values: {allowed_values: "E1" allowed_values: "E2"}projects/barhas aPolicywith: {all: DENY} The accepted values atorganizations/fooareE1, E2. No value is accepted at projects/bar. Example 10 (allowed and denied subtrees of Resource Manager hierarchy): Given the following resource hierarchy O1->{F1, F2}; F1->{P1}; F2->{P2, P3}, organizations/foo has a Policy with values: {allowed_values: "under:organizations/O1"} projects/bar has a Policy with: {allowed_values: "under:projects/P3"} {denied_values: "under:folders/F2"} The accepted values at organizations/foo are organizations/O1, folders/F1, folders/F2, projects/P1, projects/P2, projects/P3. The accepted values at projects/bar are organizations/O1, folders/F1, projects/P1.
