How the policies are processed in MCAS? are we going top down 'stop at first match', or does MCAS go through all the polices, and apply the most restricted policy?

 

What if we have, let's say, two file policies that overlap/conflict, which policy will apply here? I could not find a way to re-order/prioritize MCAS policies so I am assuming we are going to apply all matched policies but in which order?

 

Thanks!
