1. A method of wireless communication at a scheduling entity communicating with a plurality of UEs over a plurality of links, comprising:
receiving a set of priority indicators from a system access server, the set of priority indicators corresponding to time varying priority levels for communicating over the plurality of links;
assigning each of the plurality of links a subset of multiple priority indicators from the set of priority indicators, wherein each priority indicator in the subset maps at a given time to a priority level for a communication that includes a plurality of frames over a respective link of the plurality of links, each priority indicator in the subset mapping a higher level of priority to at least one frame of the plurality of frames than to another frame of the plurality of frames associated with the respective link;
determining a highest priority level for the respective link at a given frame based on the subset of multiple priority indicators assigned to the respective link; and
transmitting or receiving the communication for the respective link according to the highest priority level determined for the respective link at the given frame.
