This topic describes how to inherit alert policies.
You can inherit alert policies. If you inherit alert policies, alerts are processed based on the combination of the parent policy and the child policy.
In the final configurations of the child policy, if sub-policy exists, the sub-policies can still be executed. Therefore, the end node does not indicate the end of the alert policy. The end node on the right of the conditional node indicates the end to the execution of the alert policy. Therefore, if a parent policy is not executed in an alert monitoring module, the child policy is not executed. If a parent policy is executed in an alert monitoring module, the child policy is executed.
