Application settings

Application settings help you to configure default behaviour in GraphDB Workbench. These are some convenience options for the Workbench interface that do not change GraphDB behaviour, only the way you query the database. For now, all options are relevant to the SPARQL view.

  • 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. 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.
