What are global artifact types?

Artifact types defined at the global level can be altered at the project level.

When a project owner creates a new project in Project Tracker, any artifact types that are marked as default at the global level are displayed in the main list of artifact types for that project. However, the project owner must manually add any artifact types that have not been marked as default at the global level.

Project owners can only add artifact types that have at least one global (non-user) attribute to a project. If you want an artifact type to be available to project owners, you must assign at least one global attribute to it. See About attributes for details.
