# Application Settings¶

Application settings help you to configure the default behavior 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:

• Expand results over owl:sameAs - 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. The setting is also reflected in the Graph settings panel of the Visual graph.

• Default Inference value - Same as above, but for the Include inferred data in results option in the SPARQL editor. The setting is also reflected in the Graph settings panel of the Visual graph.

• Show schema by default in visual graph - This includes or excludes predicates from owl:, rdf:, rdfs:, sesame:, dul:, prov:, fibo:, wd:.

• Count total results in SPARQL editor - 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.

• Ignore shared saved queries in SPARQL editor - In the SPARQL editor, saved queries can be shared, and you can choose not to see them.

Application settings are user-based. When security is ON, each user can access their 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 edit the Free Access configuration, which applies to the anonymous user.
