A feature is a property that is encapsulated within a Classifier.

In the metadata model, a Feature declares a structural or behavioral characteristic of an instance of a Classifier or of the Classifier itself. Feature is an abstract metadata class.

Security Inheritance and Enforcement Rules

The following list of associations is used to determine if this object should inherit access controls from another object (inheritance), or if the association is allowed for the object (enforcement). An association will not be created unless the calling user is authorized to update one or both objects involved in the association. For more information about inheritance and enforcement rules, see the SAS Intelligence Platform: Security Administration Guide.

= indicates the resident side of an association, or where the association is persisted for cross-repository associations. If no resident side is indicated, this association may not cross repository boundaries.
