Object selectors are always processed in a well-defined sequence, which is important when an object matches more than one selector.

Selectors from a data group follow data group rules and are processed in most- to least-specific order. Selectors from the object selection parameter are always processed last to first. If a candidate object matches more than one object selector, the last matching selector in the list is used.

As a general rule when specifying items on an object selection parameter, first specify selectors that have a broad scope and then gradually narrow the scope in subsequent selectors. In an IFS-based command, for example, include /A/B* and then omit /A/B1.

Object selection examples illustrates the precedence of object selection.

For each object selector, the elements are checked according to a priority defined for the object class. The most specific element is checked for a match first, then the subsequent elements are checked according to their priority. For additional, detailed information about order precedence and priority of elements within object selectors that are data group configuration entries, see the following topics:
