Project settings

Project settings object is used to define project specific features. It references only datasets. Also, apart from other metadata objects, there can be only one project settings object in a project.

Syntax

This is the project settings object of the Retail Solution Demo. This demo covers only a part of the Birmingham area, so we use the code for the Great Britain - GB.
