Global List


Global lists are lists that store reusable data across the system in JSON format. A playbook task can access the data for reference or add new data to the Global List. This allows the Playbook to consume the data stored in the Global List.

The Global List page consists of a list of all Global Lists, which you can select to see the detailed content on the right side panel.
