Inheritance of property values

The level at which you set a property can affect other elements. For example, if you set a property for a dependency at the class level, and not on an individual dependency, it applies to all the dependencies in that class.

The following illustration shows how property values are inherited.

Note: If a stereotype is applied to an element, a property assigned to that stereotype takes precedence over the inherited property values for the element (locally overridden properties take precedence over both inherited properties and properties applied using a stereotype).
