Application Settings

Application settings help you to configure the default behaviour of the GraphDB Workbench.

The Workbench interface has some useful options that change only the way you query the database, not changing the rest of the GraphDB behavior:

  • Default SameAS value - This is the default value for the Expand results over owl:SameAs option in the SPARQL editor. It is taken each time a new tab is created. Note that once you toggle the value in the editor, the changed value is saved in your browser, so the default is used only for new tabs.
  • Default Inference value - Same as above, but for the Include inferred data in results option in the SPARQL editor.
  • Count all SPARQL results - For each query without limit sent through the SPARQL editor, an additional query is sent to determine the total number of results. This value is needed both for your information and for results pagination. In some cases, you do not want this additional query to be executed, because for example the evaluation may be too slow for your data set. Set this option to false in this case.

Application settings are user-based. When security is ON, each user can access his/her own settings through the Setup -> My Settings menu. The admin user can also change other users’ settings through Setup -> User and access -> Edit user.

When security is OFF, the settings are global for the application and available through Setup -> My Settings.

When free access is ON, only the admin can set the application settings.
