Inheriting Permissions from a Thing Template
All entities in the ThingWorx model have design time and run time permissions. Thing Templates also have design time instance and runtime instance permissions. These additional permissions are inherited by all implementing Things of a Thing Template. They mimic design time and run time permissions, but apply only to Things.
This allows you to set and manage permissions for all Things that are derived from a single Thing Template at the thing template level. You can then provide specific overrides/grants/denials at the Thing level.
