Configuring Global Contexts

Creating, Editing, and Managing Global Contexts

Global Contexts are context-prompting questionnaires used to gather data from developers before provisioning a resource. Global Contexts are designed to gather and store insightful data related to the resource that will be generated.

You can see your current Global Context by clicking on the Global Context tab in Resourcely's navigation menu:
