Global-props folder

In an Ignition project I see a folder called global-props, which stores a binary file. What is the folder global-props used for?

It stores resources of the “global-props” type. All resource types are stored under a folder named for the type. You can’t really do anything with this one.

You lost me at “global-props”. What is a “global-props” type? Do you have an example?

Eh, we’re veering into internal implementation details here, but it’s the resource type that stores some of the “core” project properties like client poll rate, default datasource, default provider, required roles, etc…

It’s saved in an opaque binary format right now, which is why there’s nothing you can really do with it.
