The release template is good for specifying variables for pipeline. To specifying variables spanning across applications, rather than creating the same release template for each applications as currently needed, are we able to create a "global" release template that is available for all applications that shares the same variable settings?

Product: BuildMaster
Version: 5.6.11

I like the idea, but of course there's definitely some questions and things we'd need to think about before we can spec out the feature. Just some initial thoughts...

  • Should this really apply to all applications, seems only a few might want to share one

  • Pipelines and deployables are not global (well, you can have a global pipeline); what to do about that? Should UI restrict from choosing?

  • Who can edit these? Admins only?

  • How else will they behave differently?

And then of course, there's the question of how this will tie into the (unspecc'd) "Projects" concept (cross-application releases)
