Change autogen globally (v1.5)

Where are the settings for the global default autogen policy stored?

My use case is that I’m creating a lot of databases on the fly, in lieu of good as-of-join. Yes, I could do that inside my Python code at the instance of CREATE DATABASE, but thought it’d be cleaner to alter the autogen.

The default settings are hardcoded: https://github.com/influxdata/influxdb/blob/26545b33d698e05c7964f861df581dff7c5379ea/services/meta/data.go#L1113-L1119

For your use case, I’d probably consider disabling meta.retention-autocreate so that you always create a default RP with your desired settings.
