Parent / Child Security Policies

If I move inheritance on a parent policy to mandatory for attack signatures, shouldn't they be inherited by an associated child policy in staging?

    I'm not sure of your specific question but here's the 

    Manual Chapter : Creating Parent and Child Security Policies
    About a thrid of the way down it says:
    'For each of the Inheritance Settings, decide whether you want inheritance to child policies to be Mandatory (child inherits the settings), Optional (the child can decide), or None (no inheritance for this feature). When done, click Save Changes.'
    Hope that helps!
  • Just trying to figure out what state the attack signatures will be inherited, staging or enforced.  I do have the signature staging check box enabled in learning and blocking settings and that setting was inherited.
