What is the order if precedence with default_namespace?

I'm trying to determine the order of precedence when a user has two roles that both assign a default app (i.e., user-prefs.conf, default_namespace).

For example, user "bob" has the following roles: workspace_default and workspace_engineering.

On the search head, in the acme_zglobal_ta app:

user-prefs.conf

[role_workspace_default]

default_namespace = global_app

In the acme_engineering_ta app:

[role_workspace_engineering]

default_namespace = engineering_app

The lexicographical sorting of the apps doesn't seem to play into it, since the global_app is given to Bob. Any insights?

I tested this further, and it appears roles do have a lexicographical precedence based on the role name.

Hi @ejwade,

I think that the use has both the roles and the sum of the feature of both the roles.

For my knowledge, there isn't a precedence in roles: if you have two roles you have the features of both of them.

Ciao.
