Re: [QF-Test] Global properties for project

Hello Vladimir,

I'm including the list again as the answer may be of general interest.

A group name is necessary, but you can follow the load properties node
with a server script to propagate the values to global:

props = rc.getProperties("groupname")
for k in props.keys():
    rc.setGlobal(k, props[k])

Best regards,
