Linked Configurations is a robust feature that enables you to establish precise connections between upstream and downstream content. With Linked Configurations, you can effortlessly check for matching unlinked configurations in the downstream project spaces before overwriting them, preventing unintended data loss. The link icon (below) conveniently helps you identify linked configurations in the downstream project spaces, ensuring easy recognition and seamless collaboration. You have complete control over the editing permissions of linked configurations in downstream project spaces through a dedicated web user permission, enhancing data integrity and access control.
Below is an example of what a linked configuration, such as a lookup table, looks like in the UI. When a configuration is linked with an upstream project space, a link icon will appear next to it to indicate it is a linked configuration.
