You can associate a global entitlement with a home site so that the global entitlement's home site overrides a user's own home site when the user selects the global entitlement.
About this task
To create a home site override, you associate a home site with a global entitlement and a particular user or group. When the user (or a user in the selected group) accesses the global entitlement, the global entitlement's home site overrides the user's own home site.
For example, if a user who has a home site in New York accesses a global entitlement that associates that user with the London home site, View looks in the London site to satisfy the user's application request rather than allocating an application from the New York site.
Verify that the global entitlement has the Use home site policy enabled. For more information, see Modify Attributes or Policies for a Global Entitlement.
Verify that the user or group is included in the global entitlement. For more information, see Add a User or Group to a Global Entitlement.
