    A content object can be a copy of another object. In contrast to the delta link, the copied object is an independent object that is no longer dependent or linked to the object from which it was copied. The copied objects (the new object instance) and the object from which it was copied have a sibling relationship and not a parent-child relationship, as is the case for the delta link.

    "A delta link means that a change in the workset will reflect to the target object (the workset copied to the role). In other words, when you make changes to the source workset, the workset that you assigned to the role will inherit the changes as well.

    Whereas, using copy option, a new workset object is created and added to the role. The two worksets are independent of each other."

    Hi Hari,

    To duplicate an copy of existing Portal object (iview, workset, role etc) you have two options.

    copy it and paste it:

    here you create a separate portal object, which has no connection to the source object(from which you copied it). both are entirely different.

    2nd option is:

    copy it paste as delta link:

    here comes inheritance. say you copy object A and paste it as delta link say name is changed to A1.

    Now A1 inherits all the properties of A.

    any change made to A reflects in A1.

    any change made in A1 doesnot reflect in A.

    it is only one -directional.

    Regards,

    Yogesh...

    Hari,

    Its simple, Please look at this scenario.

    Assume that you are having an iView named iViewA .

    Now you want have an iView iVewB similar to iViewA.

    If you used copy as deltalink.

    After you copied the iViewB from iViewA , if you make changes in iViewA , will be reflected in iViewB too even you didnt change the iViewB. because you have copied the iViewB from iViewA as delta link.

    IF you used copy insted of delta link,

    iViewA and iViewB will work independently. If you make any changes in any of the ivew wont effect other iView.
