hierarchy behavior

Hello

The CA manual says about hierarchies:

"The type hierarchy behavior can be independently for each type of hierarchical record. Set to 1 to fully enable, 0 to disable and ~ (tilde character) to partially enable restrictions."

How does this third option (~) work?

Thank you!

  •  When fully enabled, top-level records may only be created with top-level types, and sub-records may only be created

     with types that are direct sub-types of the parent's type. This ensures conformance with the type hierarchy. So

     if you have an object type hierarchy like this:


     Book

     -- Page

     ---- Figure

     -- Frontspiece


     ... then top-level records can only be of type "Book." Sub-records of books may only be "Page" or "Frontspiece";

     and sub-records of "Page" can be "Figure." "Frontspiece" may not take sub-records.


     With partially enabled, top-level records may only be created with top-level types, but sub-records may be of *any*

     type below the top-level type, not just direct sub-types. In the example above, the sub-records of a "book" can be

     of type "Page", "Figure" or Frontspiece; sub-records of a "Page" may be only of type "Figure."


     When disabled, all types are allowed anywhere.


     The type hierarchy behavior can be independently for each type of hierarchical record.

     Set to 1 to fully enable, 0 to disable and ~ (tilde character) to partially enable restrictions.
