Is there an order of precendence for Property Patterns?

If I set a property pattern at a level lower than another property pattern is set what happens?

Will one work and the other won't?

Hello,

Is there an order of precendence for Property Patterns?

No.

If I set a property pattern at a level lower than another property pattern is set what happens?

Nothing will change.

Will one work and the other won't?

There can be multiple Property Patterns effective for an object and they will all work. However, in Adaxes 2019.2 and older, if there are multiple Property Patterns effective for an object and specifying a constraint for the same property, neither of the patterns will work, but only for the particular property. In Adaxes 2020.1, this happens only if the very same options (e.g. Default value) are set in the constraints. If Property Patterns have different options (e.g. Property is required in one pattern and Default value in another one) in a constraint for a property, both will work.

How can I check or run reports on an entire Property Pattern to ensure integrity? I know I can run a check on an individual property, but this is really inefficient since I have already defined a Property Pattern for a specific object to abide by.
