Client Settings Hierarchy in MECM

Iron Contributor

I'm looking to understand how MECM client settings are combined at the client when multiple client settings bundles are applied? Is there a hierarchy reference or the like? The guide here simply states its complex but gives no detail :(

I do not recall seeing more details about that. It works using the Priority of the client settings. The one with the lower priority (ex : 1) wins over the higher one. (ex:100). Use the Resultant Client Settings to validate your changes.

For example, say a have a Boolean setting available to me in the client settings. I create a client settings config CS1 and set it to true and another CS2 that does not set it at all. I apply both policies to a client. It seems CS1 settings for that boolean take effect so the policies are merged at least.
