I'm setting an instance limit of 10 against the 'All Folders' folder in BOE XI 3.1 by checking the 'Delete excess instances when there are more than N instances of an object' checkbox and setting the field value to 10. I then press the 'Update' button.
If I then view a sub folder I can see that this setting has been inherited and that the sub folder will only permit 10 instances. If I select another sub folder I note that the setting has been lost. If I check back to the 'All Folders' folder I note that it no longer has the setting enabled.
Is this something that I'm doing wrong? Am I expecting inheritance when it doesn't exist at this level? Am I using the feature incorrectly?
