Enabling Metadata Inheritance



This article provides the process to enable the metadata inheritance function for Xinet.





The Enable Metadata Inheritance option, when enabled, will cause any file newly introduced to a volume (that has the same name and location as a previously deleted file) to inherit the original file's metadata. This option is useful for automating some workflows, but it is not appropriate for all cases. It will depend on your needs.

If the new file contains XMP data of its own, that metadata will be retained and replace any metadata already stored in the database for those fields. Take note that changing this setting will not trigger recreating the previews.
