We are thinking of adding a bit of customization to the default (placeholder) globals. We have two changes in mind and wanted to get feedback before we dove into the coding:
- Specify the list of placeholder globals in an env variable, as opposed to being hardcoded.
- Add an env variable called something like ADD_DEFAULT_GLOBALS_ON_CREATE that will be defaulted to false, but will add the placeholder variables on stream creation.
Why? This allows server admins to set up specific variables (for example, project code, name, region, discipline…) to encourage consistency across an organization.
We know that improvements to Projects and Teams are on the roadmap, so this proposal is limited in scope to not add any new complexity to the UI and UX.
